I’m the current UoNSU Postgraduate Officer. In 2015, I graduated with a BSc Exercise Physiology from the University of New Mexico. in pursuit of a career change, I came to Nottingham to study an MSc in Management which deeply challenged me. I studied a range of topics including creative problem solving through entrepreneurship, sustainable tourism, organisational leadership, change and culture. In September I began my term in office as your Postgraduate Officer after completing my dissertation on the social construction of leadership in female athletes.
