Dr Tommie Anderson-Jaquest is a highly skilled academic professional with demonstrated capabilities for thinking strategically, leading others and working effectively within teams in the public and private UK Higher Education Sector.
Born and educated in the United States, initial career interests centred upon classical music performance. Qualifications obtained include a Bachelor of Music (Southern Methodist University), a Master of Music (NorthWestern University), a Professional Doctorate (ABD) in Vocal Performance undertaken at the University of Indiana (Bloomington), and the acquisition of three professionally recognised teaching qualifications. Thereafter, she continued to work as a free-lance operatic and concert vocalist, vocal coach and teacher for many years in the US and UK.
Career directions changed when an opportunity arose to work in London as a Research Analyst in the International Coffee Organisation. Interests began to shift towards international trade and asymmetries demonstrated in respect of commodity exchange. While undertaking full-time work, four UK postgraduate qualifications were earned: a Master’s Degree in Sociology and Social Policy (North London Polytechnic), a Diploma in International Studies (University of London), a Master’s Degree in International Relations (University of Southern California – UK Campus) and, ultimately, a PhD in International Relations completed at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
In the late 1990s, career directions changed once more as a result of increasing interest in teaching, academic management and quality review in the UK HE sector. Since then, wide-ranging experience in a variety of the UK public and private Higher Education Institutions has been gained as a lecturer (City University London and LSE); Principal Lecturer, Department Head and Programme Head (Regent’s University); Dean of Quality and Research (St Patrick’s College); External Examiner (University of Buckingham); University Link Tutor (Coventry University); a PhD Thesis Supervisor (University of Gloucestershire); Fellowship in Advance HE (FHEA); a QAA Reviewer; the Principal Editor of two HE Academic Journals and an independent consultant, committed to providing assistance to private providers in the UK HE sector.
