Engaging with students as they make choices about their career path is very important to me. At AUT we ease the transition from secondary school to tertiary education and then into the workforce by helping students make informed career decisions and access the right experts and resources.
I have been working in the secondary and tertiary education sector since 2009. Before that, I was involved in student recruitment, career pathways and widening participation programmes. I strongly believe it is our duty as a tertiary provider to ensure our students transition smoothly by having all available options presented to them and their whānau. While my career and journey through AUT has flourished through other roles, being involved with our young people is what I love most.
I am married with two children; Mac, who is studying here at AUT, and Allyana who is a very passionate hip hop dancer with the Royal Family Varsity crew. Outside of AUT, I enjoy spending time with friends and, when I get the chance, love to run.
