Gwenda is PA to the Dean of Suffolk Business School.  Having previously worked as a Course Administrator for postgraduate and professional courses in the higher education sector of Suffolk College, Gwenda joined the UCS 'start-up' team in December 2006 as Professional Assistant (PA) to the Director of HR, Director of Finance and the Executive Assistant.  In the ensuing years she has worked in the Estates Department, as Campus Development Officer, and hence brings a wealth of higher education administration and institution-wide knowledge to her current role in Suffolk Business School.

She is an Accredited Member of the Association of University Administrators (AUA) and is currently one of the appointed AUA Advocates for the University of Suffolk.  Having graduated with a BA (Hons) in Business Management in 2007, she subsequently successfully completed the AUA Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) in Professional Practice (HE Administration & Management) and went on to achieve the MSc in Educational Leadership from Leicester University in 2017.

Gwenda took up my current role as PA to the Dean of Suffolk Business School in May 2011 and provides leadership support to the Dean and Executive Team as well as broader support for scholarly activities across the School.
