I graduated from ECU in 2002 with a Bachelor of Education – Special Education, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, but I found my love for Education Support while doing my practicum placements in Education Support settings. After graduating, I was posted to Geraldton, where I worked at Holland Street school for 14 years teaching kindy to year 12. In my last 3 years I was given the opportunity to be the behaviour co-ordinator for the school, which I loved.
After having my children, the need to be closer to family grew so we decided on a sea change and moved to Busselton. I worked as a teacher and Behaviour Coordinator at South Bunbury ESC for 18 months and in 2016 I was fortunate enough to win the Deputy Principal position at Geographe ESC.
I am a proud mum of 3 children and love living in this beautiful part of Australia. When we are not busy with sport and other extra-curricular activities, we love going camping and exploring what this part of the world has to offer.
My passion is being able to work with students, teachers, and parents of children with disabilities. To be challenged every day to think outside the box and collaboratively problem solve any difficulties that may arise. I love being part of each family’s journey and celebrating every child’s achievement.
