Assistant Lecturer in Accounting

Faculty of Business and Law



I am a qualified Chartered Certified Accountant with over 8 years’ experience working as an external auditor and teaching experience as a Freelance Lecturer and Assistant Lecturer. I commenced working at Coventry University’s Faculty of Business and Law in the School of Economics, Finance and Accounting in January 2015 as an Assistant Lecturer in Accounting.

Subsequent to graduating from the University of the West Indies in 2007, I worked as an external auditor with the Big 4 firm EY. I use the experiences from my professional background, the knowledge gained from my ACCA qualification and the application of my MBA in Enterprise Risk Management to create a unique learning experience here at Coventry University. I facilitate an engaged learning environment by drawing on my professional experiences, creating realistic scenarios and examples, therefore showing how theory differs or can be applied to the real world.

I also worked within the private sector as a freelance accounting tutor where I delivered papers P4 Advanced Financial Management, F8 Audit and Assurance, P7 Advanced Audit and Assurance and P1 Professional Accountant on the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) syllabus.
