As Provost of the Tertiary Education Division at CQUniversity, I oversee our vocational education and training (VET) and higher education course development and delivery.

I have worked in the regional university sector for more than 30 years, after working for Education Queensland as a secondary teacher, and in the TAFE sector.

I am a Life Member and was a founding board member of the Bundaberg YMCA, and a long-time committee member of the Bundaberg Family Day Care Scheme.

I am a passionate regional Queenslander who is interested in ensuring there are equal education and training opportunities for regional people.

I am a strong believer in the capacity-building work of organisations that focus on improving the health, education and employment outcomes of regional Queenslanders, and so I am proud to contribute to the mission and vision of IMPACT Community Services.
