I've had a long and varied career before I started working at the University in 2006, where I worked in the Admissions Office and promoted courses offered at St Patrick's College. 

In 2015 I moved to the Glasnevin campus to become a member of the Student Recruitment Team. I very much enjoy visiting schools, attending career events and talking with students and their parents/guardians about the opportunities DCU has to offer, potentially transforming their lives and our societies so that they engage in a positive way with the wider world.

Hi everyone, I’m delighted to introduce myself to you as both a past student and Student Recruitment Officer of DCU. I can share my experience with you from both perspectives and more importantly provide you with the information that you need to help you in your decision making. I look forward to visiting your school or meeting you at one of our many open days throughout the year.

I joined DCU in April 2021 as a Student Recruitment Officer. Since then, I have thoroughly enjoyed sharing insights, knowledge and information on all of the benefits that one can gain from studying at DCU. I believe that education plays a crucial role in enabling individuals to achieve their personal and professional ambitions, and thus why I embrace the opportunity to inform others on all of the great things that DCU has to offer.
