I graduated in 2006 with an Honours degree in Psychology from The University of Stirling, I proceeded to Queen Margarets University Edinburgh for a masters in Health Psychology. I came back to The University of Stirling to complete an MPhil in community health and disability using art as a tool to engage Mental Health Service Users in critical discussion and conscientization, supervised by Dr Vivien Swanson (The University of Stirling) and Dr Andrew Livingstone (The University of Exeter). In 2016 I was appointed Research Project Coordinator for the MAP project with Dr Vivien Swanson and Dr Wendy Maltinsky (funded by the Scottish Diabetes Group). I am a recognised teacher in the psychology department at Stirling.

I have been involved with multiple art projects funded by Creative Scotland, The Wellcome Trust, Stirling Council, and The University of Stirling.
