Through my own negative formal educational experiences and positive creative learning journey I was inspired to make social improvement through alternative education. By creating opportunities through my networks I hopes to inspire participants to become more active and positive members of their communities. I want to offer important life changing workshops, programs and projects to those who need and want them most.
I am a creative and resourceful community minded professional, with over 25 years experience.
I engage people through interactive performing arts, creative education and social innovation. As an energetic initiator, I have developed strong networks in areas as varied as child and youth services, tourism, government agencies, theatre and circus communities, arts and small business.
I create opportunities for people through shared learning experiences.
Ever since I was young, I have been passionate about inclusivity. I have a strong sense of community and love being a part of something bigger than myself and my immediate family. I learn so much from those around me and enjoy being able to give back.
I've gained experience through taking opportunities when they arise, or making them myself.
I've managed a children's play cafe, administrated a circus and developed a theatre education program from scratch.
All because I said YES, even when I wasn't sure if I could.
I'm always trying new things and willing to work hard.
Some of my roles include:
Casual Youth and Community Development Worker
Casual Playgroup Facilitator
Project Officer for Raise a Reader, early literacy project.
