Chair of the Board of Trustees
I graduated with Law LLB in 2018 and I currently chair the Union Trustee Board as Union President. My main aim in the Board is ensuring that all officer, lay and student trustees contribute to discussions and the reputational, legal and financial stability of the Students’ Union is upheld.
As a recent Economics graduate and the Vice President of the Union, I want to ensure that student interest is the top priority of the board. In additional, I aim for the board to be a representative and fair with the decisions made to uphold the Students Union values.
My role as a sabbatical trustee is to collaborate with the board in ensuring our students’ union has the necessary financial and structural stability for the purpose of its selfless, impartial, and smooth running, and in so doing represent our student body as per our bye-laws and live Union policy.
Kat is studying MSc Human-Computer Interaction Design, bringing over ten years’ HE and charity sector experience with her to our Board. SUs have remained close to her heart since she was a sabbatical officer at BCSU many years ago, so she jumped at the opportunity to be a student trustee.
I have genuine belief in giving back to the community that nurtures us and the Students Union is the perfect place to realize this goal. I feel privileged to represent the students of this institution and strive to make a impact for the wellbeing of students, the Union and University.
I am the former Senior Partner and Global Co-Chair of DLA Piper and am also Deputy Chair of Council at City, my local University. I chose to become a Trustee of the Students’ Union to play a more direct role in transforming the lives of students.
