My Background

I grew up in Kenya, in an area on the outskirts of Nairobi called Karen. I undertook my education in Kenya until the age of sixteen, where I then attended a boarding school in England for my A levels. After completing my undergraduate degree, I worked in a range of educational settings in Kenya and England before starting my training at Cardiff University. Since 2017, I have worked in several local authorities in the UK, including work with pupils, schools, parents, and as part of multi-disciplinary teams. In 2021, I returned home to Kenya, and I look forward to working collaboratively with families and schools to help them make effective next steps.

I enjoy working with children with a range of needs (including learning, social, and emotional challenges) and supporting them to make progress. One area I am particularly passionate about, is eating disorders. I completed my thesis on exploring ways educational psychologists could support schools working with young people with eating disorders and their families.

I have subsequently written a chapter in a textbook on eating disorders, which is currently in print, and published my research.
