I grew up in Saffron Walden, a few miles south of Cambridge and having studied to 'A' level at the Saffron Walden County High School I left to join Barclays Bank in Cambridge where I spent 10 years before joining Sidney Sussex in November 1999.


As Tutorial and Student Finance Manager I am responsible for the day to day management of the Tutorial Office team whose purpose is to provide the support required for the Senior Tutor to carry out his role as well as providing a service to our Students', Tutors', Director of Studies and Supervisors.

I am also responsible for all matters relating to student finance. These include the collection of Tuition Fees, dealing with all matters relating to the student loan company, various bursary applications, liaising with funding bodies for the payment of fees and producing the student bill. I am also the primary contact for Undergraduate & Graduate students on financial matters such as hardship, providing students with the necessary advice.
