I have 19 years’ experience in the field of Education beginning in the Primary sector I then moved on to teach English as a foreign language abroad for 5 years primarily in Italy. My 3 years teaching Military English for the Italian army I found most rewarding as well as 2 years living in the medieval town of Viterbo.
My fascination with language inspired me to return to England to study for a Master’s Degree in Applied Linguistics at Durham University. This then saw me pursue a career in academia as I began lecturing in EAP at Northumbria University. However, my passion for the medieval world, which originates from reading about the Lindisfarne Gospels as a child, continued to beckon. Hence, my current fervent study for my Doctorate currently titled: “Humility and Authority in the Lives of English Saints in The Golden Legend English Tradition from Manuscript to Print”
