Role/Responsibilities at P-12:
     -  English/Humanities Teacher
     -  Year 10 Coordinator

Where did you go to school?
     -  Ballarat and Clarendon College

What is your 60-second life story?
I feel very fortunate to be a part of a big, loving family and to have siblings and parents that are fantastic role models. I think this upbringing has prepared me well for teaching because I enjoy being around people and understand that the only way to move forward is to work together. I grew up in the small town of Dunolly in central Victoria and spent my summers playing tennis and winters playing netball. After I finished school, I moved to Melbourne, and spent the next eight years studying and working. The country life was never far from my reality though, and getting a border collie puppy (Shep) sealed my fate to live in the country. I got a job teaching at Bright P-12 College as a graduate and two and a half years later, I still love being here. Shep now has a kelpie little sister (Hennie) so I think I should probably build a house in beautiful Wandi and write a novel. I feel that since I have moved here, my family has grown considerably and Bright P-12 College, and the community in which it resides, is very special to me. 

What inspires you within your role at P-12?
The students inspire me with their creativity, resilience and positive outlook on life.

What are your interests and passions outside of school?
I spend a lot of time trying to be creative: sewing, knitting, drawing, painting, playing guitar, writing, reading fiction, watching movies and TV series. I also spend a lot of time drinking lattes and catching up with family and friends.

What is your vision for the future?
When I look at my grandmother and all the things that have happened in her lifetime I know that there are endless possibilities for the future. I hope that we are able to make real changes to help the environment and that we treat each other with compassion, humanity and a good sense of humour.
