PA to Professor Angela Shore
Diabetes and Vascular Research Centre
Office hours: Mon-Thurs 09:00 - 17:15
Mon-Thurs 09:00 - 17:15
I work as PA to Professor Angela Shore, Scientific Director of the NIHR Exeter Clinical Research Facility and Professor of Cardiovascular Sciences. I provide extensive support through diary management, organisation and co-ordination of meetings and events, dealing with routine correspondence and making travel arrangements, plus liaising with external collaborators. I enjoy working closely with colleagues within the College of Medicine and Health and the university as a whole and also with the many clinical and research staff I work with every day on the RD&E site.
I will be retiring from active wokring life at the end of September this year and am looking forward to picking up on all the hobbies that have suffered from serious neglect in the past 40 years and am eager to try out some new ones too. I will almost certainly be found volunteering for various local charities so hope to see some of you then.
Having trained as a Director's secretary at Pitman's in London back in the 1970s, I worked in that role at several different companies based in central London. I then worked as a PA/administrator at various German universities for over 20 years before returning to the UK in 2014 to care for my ailing mother. I joined the University of Exeter on a part-time basis that same year as maternity leave cover in CLES, following which I enjoyed short stints in several departments as a member of the Temporary Staff Bank before joining the Medical School as PA to Professor Angela Shore on a permanent basis in February 2016.
