About Me

I’m an experienced researcher and practitioner, with an interest in gender, criminology and social research methods. I currently project manage a variety of process and impact evaluations for organisations whose work is focused on mentoring for young people, peer support for disadvantaged parents and providing support to carers.

My experience and skills

I have extensive experience of developing and delivering training to professionals to improve individual and organisational responses to women accessing services in the community.

Before I became a researcher, I managed and delivered frontline services in the community for people who had experienced drug and alcohol problems, those involved with criminal justice services and women involved in or seeking to exit prostitution.

My interests

I have carried out extensive research into violence against women. This includes co-authoring a book, ‘Exiting Prostitution: A Study in Female Desistance’, based on a research project examining how women exit from prostitution.

My work with women involved in prostitution prompted co-found the Stand Against Sexual Exploitation Network, where I was Deputy Director. I became involved in order to establish positive contacts with other services and individuals keen to promote support for exiting prostitution, to learn from others and share my knowledge and expertise.

I’m currently finishing an MSc in Criminology and Social Research Methods.
