I am a previous Bachelor of Primary Teaching student of the Dunedin College of Education, graduating with academic excellence in my final year. In addition, I completed my Postgraduate Diploma in Specialist Teaching - Deaf and Hard of Hearing endorsement, from the University of Canterbury.

I am a primary trained teacher but have also worked across all education sectors as an itinerant teacher. More recently I have taught in multi-level classrooms as a Teaching Principal of a rural and full primary school.

I have a real passion for inclusive education, leadership, professional practice, and systems management. My interest is in socio culture and challenging bias within current issues.
