I have always been fascinated by the diversity and uniqueness of individuals and the different ways people see and interact with the world.
As the youngest daughter of a family of strong determined women I slip naturally into a supportive rather than a leadership role. I find it extremely fulfilling and rewarding to be part of a team working with inspiring and dedicated academic and professional staff. It is also a privilege to play a part in so many students’ journeys to becoming registered psychologists.
Working in the field of psychology is rewarding in itself but receiving my 25-year service medal was a wonderful highlight. Monash has enabled me to enjoy a wonderful and rewarding career, allowing me to grow and develop within my role over the years. It provided a flexible and supportive work environment as my family grew, encouraged and supported my studies and continues to support my professional development.
I can think of few careers more rewarding than a career in psychology or counselling. It’s a career that can grow with you across your lifespan, enabling you to contribute to the wellbeing of individuals and the communities you touch throughout your lifetime.
