Achievements post Elderslie High School
•I was the first member of my family to attend university. I graduated from Sydney University in 2008 with a major in History and a double minor in English and Performance Studies.
•I went on to receive a Diploma of Education at Macquarie University in 2009 and have had the pleasure and the privilege to work with some amazing kids.
•I value my independence as one of my greatest achievements. This independence affords me the opportunity to travel abroad annually – the places I’ve seen, the cultural immersions, and the ability to engage with the rich tapestry of history’s greatest achievements contribute to my identity and give me purpose.
•Perhaps discovering an appreciation for the smaller moments has been my greatest achievement to date.
I love spending time with my gorgeous son.
