I am very excited to be joining the team at Somerset College in 2018, in the role as Head of Junior School. Somerset College has an outstanding reputation and I look forward to leading the school in many successful pursuits in the future.

Most recently, I was working in the role of Assistant Head of Junior School at All Saints Anglican School, Pastoral and Curriculum. Prior to that, I worked with Education Queensland for 20 years in a variety of teaching and leadership positions, in schools across Logan and the Gold Coast.

I am an enthusiastic, motivated and compassionate person who loves to live life to the fullest. I love to learn and I love to promote lifelong learning, through reflective practice, by inspiring the students and staff with whom I work to do the same. I genuinely care for every student in my care and I am always available to meet with you or talk with you to discuss any ideas, positive feedback or concerns you may have. I have two children of my own, now teenagers, and I know the importance of feeling confident in their education process, learning and wellbeing at school. I look forward to getting to know you all over the next 12 months and beyond.

I will leave you with my favourite quote from Ghandi; something I strive to learn and live by:

LIVE as if you were to die tomorrow; LEARN as if you were to live forever.
