I originally studied the Professional Bakery Level 2 & 3 at University College Birmingham and during this time I worked at a selection of bakeries in the west midlands and in France on a work placement basis. Following on from this, I then completed levels 4, 5 and 6 on the Bakery and Patisserie degree. During my time on work placements, it helped me gain the skills I can showcase to students today.
On completion of my degree, i was nominated and awarded Freedom of the Worshipful Company of Bakers for my efforts and attitude towards the industry as well as achieving top grades. During lock down, I set up my own business from home attending farmers markets, exhibition shows and providing local businesses with bread and cakes.
I then joined University College Birmingham in 2021 as a bakery lecturer, teaching college students on level 3, and University students level 4, 5 and 6.
