All about me!
Languages: English but I am learning Welsh and German.
Travel experiences: Australia, America, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Greece, France and Ireland.
Three fun facts about me:
Life at Celtic English Academy.
Job Role: Finance and Marketing Assistant.
Background: I heard of Celtic English Academy through friends in the poetry circuit! I had lots of experience in the third sector and transferred my skills to the role in Celtic.
Typical week at Celtic: I am the person people go to process payments and audit accounts throughout the week. Students often visits me to discuss bookings and admissions.
Where you will find me: I can be found on the top floor in the main building in the Finance Department.
Favourite part of my job: I most enjoy international communications. I like building relationships with our agencies across the world.
Favourite part about working in Cardiff: everywhere you need to go is in walking distance!
Best moment at Celtic: I have had lots of lovely moments at Celtic. I think the best thing is when students make progress. For example, seeing the impact of our IELTS classes; when learners arrive and struggle to speak and then they finish speaking fluently with a place in a UK University. Also, when I meet big Manic Street Preachers fans from Japan!

Favourite Cardiff bakery: Brod, a Danish bakery.
Best place to eat dinner in Cardiff: I love Efes BBQ, it is a Turkish restaurant.

Words of wisdom for new students ?
