Originally from the UK, I have more than 15 years experience in radio, television, digital media and live events spanning both the competitive UK commercial market and also public sector with the BBC (Radio 1 and Worldwide).
Working in those highly competitive areas, has lead to an extensive background, in project and event management, marketing and leadership.
I've since made the move to Australia where I now lecture at Macleay College.
How did you get into the industry?
While at university (studying Accounting and Financial Analysis) I worked part time as an assisstant producer at the local radio station. They offered me a full time position when I graduated and the rest, as they say, is history.
What is the biggest difference in the industry since you were at university?
Social media and the digital era has lead to more transparency and an expectation of instant gratification. This in turn means that we, people, the consumers are more important and have bigger voices than ever before.
What do you do when you are not teaching?
A mum of two little boys. Enough said?
What do you enjoy about teaching at Macleay?
The college really cares about it's students and staff. They genuinely want us all to do well and thrive at whatever we do.
What subjects do you teach at Macleay?
Consumer Behaviour, Introduction to Event Management, Design Innovation and Technology for Events.
What is the best advice you give your students?
Make the most of your time at university - have fun, make friends, impress your lecturers - this is the start of your future career network.
