With stunning vistas, mountain adventures aplenty and exceptional teaching, who can think of a better place to study and work than Beau Soleil?
It is an incredible privilege to be a Deputy Housemaster at Beau Soleil, to help support young adults and inspire them to reach their full potential.
I'm one of two Deputy Housemasters in the Deux Chalets boarding team and I’ve joined Beau Soleil with my partner, Kathryn McGinley, who is a Deputy Houseparent in Beau Soleil Boys. I’ll also be working within the College Counselling department assisting students with their university applications.
During my undergraduate degree at the University of Glasgow, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Montreal which provided me with firsthand experience of the transformative effect international education can have. Not only did I develop a lifelong network of friends, I also gained a global perspective of the world which has had an immensely positive impact on my life and career. I hope our students get to experience something similar at Beau Soleil and I am excited to be part of that journey.
Following my undergraduate studies I proceeded to teach English in France, organise summer camps, obtain my Postgraduate Certificate in Education and even work on a farm in rural Australia.
Since then, I’ve worked in Higher Education for the last eight years at several universities around the world. Most recently, New York University’s campus in London as a Student Life Coordinator where I was responsible for providing pastoral support to students and organising experiential excursions.
I’ve always loved the outdoors and in my spare time you’ll find me on the slopes, running trails or playing sports. I hope my enthusiasm for the outdoors inspires the pupils to step outside of their comfort zone and embrace the environment they are living and studying in.
