I'm a learning and development professional with over 10 years’ experience in instructional design and eLearning development.
With a background in communications, I spent my early career working as a facilitator and technical writer in a large corporation whilst completing a Master’s Degree in Literature, majoring in Visual Culture.
In 2012, I founded wordology to offer professional learning programs and services to address training needs of all shapes and sizes at an accessible price point. We specialise in helping SME business, multinational corporations and government departments develop their learning programs by fusing tried and tested adult learning principles with future-focused innovative design. I can talk for hours about how we've done this, why we're doing it and what else we have up our sleeves, so please, get in touch if you'd like to know more. We love talking about us almost as much as we love hearing about you.
No stranger to continuous learning myself, I have spent many years successfully implementing practical solutions aimed at promoting social inclusion and am constantly striving to learn more about how to best help those most marginalised.
In addition to this, I work as a freelance community journalist and author, which is challenging due to my fondness for writing titles in lower case. In 2015, I collaborated with my community partner, Rosie’s Place Inc, to publish the book, My Tree and Me, a beautifully illustrated children’s book about recognising the magic that still exists in children even after they have been impacted by trauma. I also serve on the board of a local community organisation which fosters social participation for CALD communities.
To unwind, I enjoy being the managing agent of Jalebi's instagram, adding things to my Netflix queue that I never watch and taking Harry Potter trivia far too seriously.*
*In case it ever comes up, The Philosopher's Stone was stored in vault 713 at Gringotts Bank, the core of the Elder Wand is made from Thestral tail feather and Voldemort's mum's name is Merope Gaunt. You're welcome.
