I am very passionate about working with youth. Being able to help students identify their potential and guide them into a future they are truly excited about is what attracted me to this role.


Before coming to AUT I worked for four years as an event manager for Stage Challenge, a not-for-profit organisation for whom I organised 20 events nationwide annually involving 16,000 students. I enjoyed helping to provide young people with new, exciting opportunities and skills through the events, a 100% smoke and drug free global series that involves students performing dance, design and drama.

I completed a Bachelor of Communication Studies in Public Relations at AUT in 2011. I loved my course and all the opportunities that studying through AUT provided me. I believe tertiary educations offers a great chance to learn new skills and knowledge, get industry contacts and build lasting relationships. I personally wish to continue to learn and build on skills and knowledge with further study at AUT, where life-long learning is encouraged.

About me

My husband and I are keen campers, constantly looking for different beaches and hideaways to explore. I also love to keep fit and active, and if I'm not on a soccer or hockey field during my free time you'll probably find me out in my garden.
