I commenced with the Didasko Group as a Research Writer & Subject Matter Expert, while I worked as a sessional lecturer. I loved the company so much, I soon moved into an ongoing role. From there, I progressed into managing strategic projects for the Group and now hold the position of General Manager - Education.
My career began in the hospitality industry in Cairns, Queensland. I worked in various four and five star hotels across a range of roles, including reception (Manager & Supervisor), reservations, night audit and HR/training and development. I saw first-hand the impact quality training and development could have on the individual and the business, and this inspired my career change.
After completing a Diploma in Teaching, I went on to do a Bachelor in Education and Training. I also have a Master of Business Administration (MBA), Cert IV in Training & Assessment and a Diploma of Hospitality.
I have extensive experience in curriculum development and teaching, from on-the-job training, online courses, classroom delivery – to lecturing, both in Melbourne and in China. My favourite topics include human resource management, leadership, managing diversity and business planning and strategy.
