In 2014 she began studying for the RHS Level 3 Horticulture examinations, completing the full RHS Level 3 Diploma with distinction in 2018, becoming Senior Tutor for disability charity Share Community as Senior Tutor, teaching City and Guilds Practical Horticulture Courses to Level 2 to disabled adults.
In 2019 she studied for the RHS Master of Horticulture degree course, passing in 2022 with Distinction and winning the Chittenden Award for the highest grades in her year. She currently works as a sessional tutor for EcoLocal, Sutton Parks Department and others and is an exam marker and assessor for the RHS.
