I have been working in the childcare sector for four decades. I have worked as a Child Care Director, a Quality Assurance Manager, a Lecturer and Assessor at The Australian Child Care Academy, an Ambassador for Child Exploitation and Online Protection, a Child Protection Trainer, Area Manager and as an Acting Team Leader, Acting Senior Project Manager, Senior Assessment Officer and Assessment Officer at the Education and Care Regulatory Unit.
I am passionate about quality childcare and I advocate for the safety and protection of children. I am committed to providing a nurturing environment where educators, children and families are respected, listened to and enabled to succeed.
My philosophy of enabling the spirit of play based learning, friendship, parent and community involvement through holistic early education lies at the heart of everything I do.
On a personal level, I am a wife, a mother, a grandma, a sister, an aunty and a daughter. I adore my family and love spending time with them. I am an avid gardener and a real softie with animals. I own a ‘mini zoo’ which includes crazy crabs, worm farms, a number of fish ponds, three dogs, two cats and two cockatiels …. Not to mention the native birds that come into my garden on a daily basis to dine.
I love my footy team, love my two cricket teams, love tennis, golf and Formula 1 and try to go see as much live sport as I can, when I can.
I genuinely look forward to meeting you and to working in collaboration with you to provide the highest quality care and education for your child.
