University College Cork
I studied Architectural Technology in Cork Institute of Technology and completed my honours degree at Napier University, Edinburgh. I then joined the Masters Programme in Planning and Sustainable Development at University College Cork to strengthen and broaden my skillset. This course gave me an insight which altered my career focus from Designer to Planner as it revealed to me the bigger picture within which Planners work.
I joined the RTPI as it is internationally recognised organisation providing excellent career opportunities, up to date planning information, events and seminars. It provides excellent networking opportunities and information on a great range of further education options. I am currently at the bottom of the planning ladder but look forward to the interesting journey to the top!
