Director of Technology
Helen has been part of the LogicPrep team since 2008 in various roles: she is a graphic designer (formerly a Communications Designer at Pembroke College, Oxford University), and currently heads up LogicPrep’s software project, designs the LogicPrep books and works on LogicPrep’s database of proprietary questions. Passionate about using technology effectively in education, she has been training in user experience design and is excited to be creating technology that enhances the test preparation experience.
Helen is a Brit and, after eight years living in the south of France, is now back in the UK. When not sitting at her desk working remotely, Helen is probably playing the piano, designing a new typeface, volunteering for Amnesty International as a translator, walking her dog (a long-haired chihuahua, Max, who thinks he’s a cat) or looking after her kids… but most probably doing all at the same time!

Favorite place to study In Oxford we are spoilt for choice, but it has to be the beautiful Radcliffe Camera.
Favorite book It changes all the time, but I currently love Play It Again: An Amateur Against the Impossible by Alan Rusbridger, which I found inspirational for my piano playing.
Hidden Talent I can communicate using the deaf-blind alphabet (tactile sign language).
