A brief CV
After graduating from St Anne’s College, Oxford, with a degree in Chemistry I joined Pfizer as a pharmaceutical sales representative. Towards the end of my eleven years with Pfizer I moved into IT Training. On leaving Pfizer I joined Oxfordshire Mental Healthcare Trust, where I delivered basic IT training to staff within OMHT and the Primary Care Trusts across Oxfordshire. After a couple of years I moved on to European Electronique, a small IT reseller based in Eynsham. I spent four years there, delivering Microsoft Office training and support. I also learnt to use and deliver training on interactive white boards, FITS (ITIL for schools), Moodle and a number of classroom voting systems.
From European Electronique I joined Corporate Project Solutions (CPS), a consultancy that specialises in Microsoft Project, Project Server, Project Online, SharePoint and CRM solutions. Initially I worked purely as a training consultant but gradually moved into a full consultancy role, managing the whole project lifecycle.
In recent years I have developed more of an interest in the outdoors and the environment. The more I learnt the more interested I became in the problems surrounding the global overpopulation, global warming and the decline in biodiversity. I decided that I wanted to be part of the solution to these problems.
So, in March 2015 I left my job with CPS to explore new opportunities and options.
My plan is to find a role, that best fits my experience and skills, within an organisation that supports research and education into how we can promote a sustainable environment.
To this end I took a course in mapping and GIS early in 2015. In September 2015 I started another course, a part time Post Graduate Certificate in Ecological Survey Techniques. Both these courses are delivered by the Oxford University Department of Continuing Education.
During the summer of 2015 I updated my Microsoft Office skills and I am now a Microsoft Office Specialist Master.
To broaden my ecological knowledge I took part in a number of plant surveys.
I am currently assisting Earthwatch as a research intern and I am working part time with Professor Yadvinder Malhi at the University of Oxford, Environmental Change Institute, doing some data analysis.
