She has toured with companies such as Propeller Theatre and Northern Broadsides, as well as working ‘in house’ for the RSC (A Tender Thing, The Hypocrite), the National Theatre (Jane Eyre) and extensively for Bristol Old Vic and Tobacco Factory Theatres.

I’m constantly delighted by the talent, commitment and drive of our students. Their curiosity and joy in the work gives us all energy and keeps me on my toes! My goal is to ensure that their voices serve their acting - both in theatre and recorded media. They need to be able to project, learn accents, respond to a wide variety of texts and have a voice that is healthy and be able to sustain long tours and tough filming schedules. This involves them working extremely hard – but having fun as well. When the new students see the final year students in production for the first time I know they’ll come into class the next day fully understanding the high standard they’re working to achieve.
