What I'm doing now

I moved to San Francisco in September 2016 where I have been working on some freelance projects and in several volunteer positions. I am currently looking for a challenging marketing role in the bay area.

My best Lancaster memory

It has to be Extrav week! Nothing beats the feeling of finishing the year, celebrating in the sun with friends (or dancing in the rain, it is still Lancaster) and of course, the knowledge that your college Extrav is far superior to the other colleges.

What Lancaster means to me

My Lancaster memories are some of the best I have. The campus set up isn't very common in the UK and I am so grateful I got to experience that during my time at University.
Although my course set me up for my career and the teaching was incredible, it's the friends I made and the experience of getting to know every cobbled street in the small city that really mean the most to me.

Why I volunteer as an alumni group co-ordinator

Having moved to the US recently knowing very few people, I'm keen to connect with other graduates as I think that Lancaster attracts like-minded people. I am a huge advocate of both undergraduate studies (which I completed) and post graduate studies, as my sister completed her PhD at Lancaster. We are a very pro-Lancaster family!
