How I'd describe myself

In 2006 I completed a Science Degree with 1st class Honours. I had been working for Maroondah City Council since 1999 as a Biodiversity Officer, and continued to work there until May 2008.

In mid 2006 I began working for Swinburne as an assessor, and soon began managing a contract program for Parks Victoria. This contract ended in 2011, at which point I took on a new role in establishing and managing an RPL Centre for Swinburne's Department of Horticulture and Environment. The RPL Centre concluded in December 2012 due to the closure of Swinburne's Lilydale campus.

Since early 2013 I have been managing Swinburne's Diploma of Landscape Design, and have recently organised the changeover from this Victorian Accredited Course to the National Diploma of Landscape Design, with a large focus on sustainability. This role concluded recently due to a restructure.
