More about Me
Mapping the Maze
Clearing the Path Ahead
I am a passionate
protector of childhood
I have always been determined to make a difference.
Growing up, there were 2 things I was certain of: that my career had to be something that made a real difference in people's lives; and that I wanted to be a mother.
Even as a child myself I enjoyed the company of younger children, delighting in their way of viewing the world and the stories they would tell. I was fascinated with how they learned and developed.
I had babysitting gigs as a teen, then moved to tutoring and out of school hours care alongside retail work, whilst studying at university.
I started with a degree in Early Childhood Education and spent several years in daycare centres, kindergartens and relief teaching in primary schools.
After leaving a teaching position that was not a good fit, I took on a 2-day reception gig at a child psychology practice.
2 days turned into 6 years - and involved me becoming the Practice Manager; working with psychologists to create social skills and school readiness group programs for children with autism; and completing a Graduate Diploma in Psychology.
