what am I doing?
Using what I have in my hand to grow the desires of my heart.
In my hand is the context of education. Whether it be children, young people or adults, I love to equip, grow and provide conditions for learning that can bring positive change.
In my heart is the desire to help people unleash their potential. Each one of us have a unique contribution to make in the world, but often we need someone alongside to help to shape our path.
At Northern Beaches Christian School I am responsible for communications, marketing and media. As the Director of Sydney Centre for Innovation in Learning, seek to ‘Lead the Change’ in reinventing schools and learning to engage and inspire.
what else have I done?
I started as a primary school teacher in the 1980s. I have held leadership roles in the not-for-profit sector, working for community, educational, national and international organisations.
I’m a real person, a wife, a mother and a mother-in-law. In 2013 I trained for ocean swimming and competed in the North Bondi Classic in February 2014. Then in late 2014 I decided to start running, training for the Mothers Day Classic in 2015. I am not fast, but I am determined. I have learnt a lot about myself through this, that I am goal driven, and I’ve learnt that winning doesn’t necessarily mean coming first.
My Christian faith is an important element of who I am. Whatever I do, I seek to live out my purpose
One more thing, I know about coffee.
