I have been working with the School of Indigenous Australian Studies since 2012. My background includes working for the Federal Government in the policy areas of Aboriginal education and Aboriginal employment. I worked in various roles including student engagement and retention at a regional Primary school for seven years. I recently completed a Master’s degree in Journalism. As a non-Indigenous person, I enjoy learning from my extended Aboriginal and Islander family and I use those experiences to enrich my teaching.
