I have worked in Higher Education ever since I graduated from Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland.
A degree in languages took me to Europe and after working for a number of years in France I settled in Italy, and now live in the northern part of the country, near Lake Como.
Alongside my consultancy activities, I am also Associate Director at the Centre for Higher Education Internationalisation (CHEI) at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan and co-editor of the Journal of Studies in International Education (JSIE).
I find being actively engaged in international academic work helps me keep in touch with the realities of change in higher education around the world. I developed a strong interest in higher education management first through my own practice and then when I returned to studies at the University of Bath, UK, where I earned my Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) in Higher Education Management.
I am currently a member of the International Advisory Board at the University of Granada in Spain and am also Past Chair of the Board of Directors at Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE) in Milwaukee, United States of America, and Past President of the European Association for International Education (EAIE), and all these roles have encouraged me to think about higher education management from different perspectives.
When I am not at work I am out in the hills around Lake Como or further afield where I love to walk or run. Being close to nature is a constant source of inspiration for me both for life and work.
