Librarian, creative thinker, encourager and connector.
  • I have ADHD-C. Yes I’m a late diagnosis person, no it’s not a fad, yes TikTok had something to do with it.
  • You’ll currently find me working from home as a Client Engagement Specialist (project management, information management) in the challenging world of work, health and safety.
  • I facilitated creative messiness, peer learning and support in The University of Newcastle Library’s first makerspace.
  • You can read articles I have written including INCITE, Letters to a Young Librarian, blog posts and Medium.
  • I was the co-host of Turbitt & Duck: The Library Podcast.
  • 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.
