Contact Details


I have spent many years working in various libraries and as a tutor for the Open University, WEA and Unison. The opportunity to work for the OLU means I can finally combine the two areas. I enjoy going to films (especially at Aber's Commodore - a unique experience) and after years of applying for library jobs, I can now admit to enjoying reading fiction! As for exercise, I count climbing the hill to the Llanbadarn campus as more than adequate.
