Her fascination in neuroscience started as a young learner herself in reading about the study of phrenology during the Victorian period. The modern developments in the field of Neuroscience became a focus of her pastoral support in schools 15 years ago from which point she has been seeking strategies and meaningful interventions to support the learners she has taught and supported by using her research and applying this to her practice.
