I began working with children in a voluntary role at Roxby Downs Area School where my children attended. In 1993, I moved to Darwin where I worked at Moil Primary School and Moil Pre-School as a Part Time Instructor with a number of children with various learning difficulties. At the end of 1995, I moved to Port Lincoln and began work at Port Lincoln Primary School where I worked for 14 years as a School Services Officer. During this time I also studied externally through the University of South Australia and completed a Diploma in Arts, Liberal Studies.
In 2010, I had the opportunity to purchase Independent Teaching Services and begin my own business. This has been a wonderful and exciting venture, one that I am pleased to have taken on. I work with children of all ages, from Reception through to Year 12 and find my work with students to be very rewarding.
I am also involved with the Port Lincoln Soccer Association and have been for many years. I am currently treasurer, bar manager and committee member for the association and help with the organisation of game days on Sundays during the soccer season.
