Dr Madi Ruby
Before being promoted to Associate Dean, I was Programme Leader for the Diploma in Counselling. I remain a registered and Accredited Counsellor / Psychotherapist but now apply these skills in my leadership and management work and research.
Prior to joining Wrexham University in 2012, I worked for another university and college of further education. I grew up and completed my primary and secondary education in North Wales, but moved away to go to university. This lead to a previous career in multi-national ICT companies such as Sun microsystems and Microsoft. I managed strategic alliances with a focus on developing solutions for a variety of market sectors. These included healthcare/NHS, retail, finance, e-commerce and government.
I re-trained as a counsellor and educator during a career break to have a family, having decided to move back ‘home’. I have a sense of purpose and achievement from contributing to the education of the people of North Wales and the border counties, as well as those who travel form further afield for the benefits that Wrexham university and its local environment offers.
