I have been a High Growth & Entrepreneurs manager in Barclays UK for almost the last two years. During this time, I have supported innovative tech businesses to realise their growth potential with funding and access to my extensive network. Such companies span a variety of industries from female founded retail tech to media content SaaS businesses.

Previous roles have included management of technology base projects, and supporting key accounts of regulated financial technology firms.

I have a passion for technology and this goes beyond my career. I have supported workshops, helping children to code and build prototype apps, and mentored a female founded retail tech business to scale through various tech based applications supported them to successfully launch their website to drive further growth.

My educational background includes a BSc in Financial Mathematics (including computer programming) and earlier studies in IT, Maths & Economics. For my dissertation at University I built a credit risk default platform, implemented by a credit union to better assess the risk of lending to those not served by the mainstream banking industry.

I also held a role as President of the university’s Mathematics Department in my penultimate and final year to develop the general academic and social welfare of mathematics students.
