Personal profile

Roles and responsibilities

I coordinate the University's academic English program and support students in developing their research, writing, presentation and language skills, with a particular emphasis on working with students with English as a second or subsequent language. I coordinate the Post Entry Language Assessment, and I am the STUDYSmarter (Academic Skills Centre) faculty liaison for Health and Medical Sciences.

I am a National Councillor and the UWA Branch President of the National Tertiary Education Union, and I am a professional & general staff representative on Academic Board. I am also a poet, and my first collection straight lines was published in 2018 by Mulla Mulla Press.
