    About me

    I am an Associate Lecturer in the School of Education and and I teach within the Physical Education domain. I am currently doing a Masters Degree at Murdoch University.

    I have taught in various primary and secondary schools across Canberra and Perth before commencing at Murdoch in 2011.

    My own participation is sport has spanned 25 years and includes activities as a national representative, leader and coach. Between the period 2001-2010, I was a member of the Australian women’s hockey team. The most rewarding experience for me was witnessing and experiencing how sport serves as a vehicle for human connection, bridges social divides, and unites people. I am passionateĀ  about building prospective teachersā€™ confidence and ability to deliver quality physical education programs, regardless of their previous experience.
