    BCom (Curtin University)

    Associate Lecturer

    About me

    I have been a lecturer and tutor at Murdoch University since 1997 in the School of Business and Governance (in the Business School). My teaching expertise has been in the area of Business Law and Accounting and more recently Management. I have taught in both undergraduate and postgraduate courses, locally and offshore at campuses in Singapore, Malaysia and Dubai.

    Prior to commencing at Murdoch University I lectured in Business at a Perth technical college. My professional career began in the Australian Taxation Office in Perth as a Manager of administrative services before employment as a Management Accountant in Retail Banking in Perth.

    My research interests are in the not for profit sector. I am currently undertaking a PhD which is examining advocacy in not for profit organisations and the relationship they have with governments, their primary funder.
