Biography

I am a passionate educator, committed to supporting others in making the most of their educational opportunities. My ultimate goal is to ensure that any student, studying at any school in Australia, is able to achieve and surpass their educational goals, creating opportunities for further work and study that they never knew existed.

 

I believe that a key strategy to achieve this is the utilisation of a place-based approach. A Master of Studies will enable me to study across policy, educational leadership and international development, equipping me with the knowledge and skills to develop a framework for successful place-based approaches. I have a keen interest in outreach programs and trying innovative methods that are built around the individual needs of the benefactor. I am also an avid rower and spend a lot of my time on the rivers of Perth.

Skills & Expertise

  • Education outreach programs
  • Community engagement
  • Student leadership development
  • Tertiary student experience
  • Community sport

"My aspiration is to work with schools on establishing a place-based approach, identifying locally how the local and broader community can positively impact students' educational outcomes."
