Prior to working for LJMU Track worked in the Health and Fitness private sector and ran her own sports therapy business. Her first role within the university was within the sports facilities for which Track was the manager for 8 years, during which time she developed existing and new sports programmes for both the students and wider community. With this experience, she teaches Sports Management across all levels.
Taking on the role of Faculty Entrepreneurship & Business Development manager 6 years ago, which involves the leadership and management of business, enterprise and entrepreneurship activity across the faculty, Track now works with both students and staff to maximise community engagement and entrepreneurial connections. Working with students Track has a passion to develop students enterprising skills and become independent learners. Through ‘Live ‘ Project students have the opportunity to work in groups or alone on an idea that they develop and see through to the delivery stage.
Track has a keen interest in enterprise education, is a fellow of the National Centre for Entrepreneurship in Education (NCEE) and was highly commended in the National Enterprise Educator Awards (NEEA) 2011 for her work in developing strategies for enterprise education in a non business faculty.
