I have enjoyed a dual career in both adult education and as a health practitioner. At this stage in my career I am passionate about merging understanding of human psychology with educational theories of learning and teaching. This extends to supporting faculty, students and curriculum development to create authentic and engaging learning experiences.

My working life has been balanced with raising family over the past 14 years. During this time, I have expanded my qualifications and taken up various employment opportunities. These include positions of clinical supervision, senior lecturer, online facilitator and curriculum development for face-to-face, blended and online facilitation in institutions in both Australia and in the UK. Branching out into curriculum learning design and professional development facilitation.

Specific skills I offer include how to create and facilitate safe environments of learning for a diverse population. My commitment to developing positive learning platforms for both faculty and students is enduring.

I look forward to connecting with those who share the same interest for a holistic approach to tackling educational business needs for revenue and retention by creating meaningful educational experiences. Linking new cutting edge ideas to sound learning theories and research.

Look forward to connecting!
