About

I am a librarian, podcaster, creative thinker and connector.

  • I’m the co-host and co-creator of the library podcast, Turbitt & Duck.
  • You can read articles I have written for INCITE, Letters to a Young Librarian, blog posts and Medium.
  • I’ve co-presented at the 7th New Librarians’ Symposium, Health Libraries Australia Professional Development Day, ALIA Information Online 2017 and LIANZA 2017.
  • I hold 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!
  • In the last few years I’ve worked in a special library, research governance communications, public library and now for the Australian Library and Information Association.
  • I’ve been a technology tutor for the Central Coast Seniors Computer Club, teaching Mac and online skills.
  • Before libraries (and during my library studies) I was the Secretary, then Chairperson of the Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre. During my time on the Board I led the development of the neighbourhood centre’s strategy, records management policy and online presence.
  • My role in research governance was focused on communications and marketing, building the research profile of the organisation and supporting new researchers to achieve their goals. I was also the project manager for the inaugural CCLHD Research Symposium in 2016.
  • I am always looking for ways to customise learning and communication so that it works for individual situations,  and will ask why?
