I’ve facilitated workshops on connecting personal values and professional development and co-presented papers at the 7th New Librarians’ Symposium, Health Libraries Australia Professional Development Day, ALIA Information Online 2017 and LIANZA 2017.
I have a Bachelor of Information Studies from Charles Sturt University and a Certificate IV in Community Services (Mental Health) with Distinction from TAFE New England.
I co-convened the 8th New Librarians’ Symposium, held in Canberra in June 2017 at the National Library of Australia. The event was a sell-out with the highest number of registrations for this event ever. Our committee was a group of feisty, smart and strategic volunteers!
Since 2010, I’ve held roles in community development, libraries, research governance and a professional association.
My pre-library career involved administration, project management, complementary health and community development.
As a lifelong learner, I am always curious about why and how we might improve the effectiveness of our teaching and communication methods for specific contexts.
