Biography

Present Position(s): Lecturer, UWA School ofSport Science, Exercise & Health
I have held the position of Associate Lecturer/Lecturer at UWA since 1989. I have an education background, having trained and taught as a secondary teacher of PE, Health, History and Science. Since my appointment at UWA, I have developed into the PE pedagogist in a School that trains up to 45 PE & Health teachers every year.

I now coordinate and lecture in a variety of units, work with a team providing the pedagogical emphasis within the School of Sport Science,Exercise & Health and have roles on committees within and outside of the University, on the pedagogical and activity wellbeing of adolescents. In my time at UWA, I estimate I have trained over 800 teachers.
