My career in education has developed over 13 years and spans across roles in secondary and tertiary institutions. I am a qualified teacher with a strong work ethic and proven ability to meet expectations and sustain results. I pride myself on my ability to demonstrate a consistent focus on leading reflective, evidence based and ethical practice. As a Nunukul Aboriginal woman I am strong in my identity and proud of my cultural heritage. This drives my passion to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples on their higher education journeys, and my commitment to student success.
