LLB (Hons), GDLP (ANU)
I am a highly motivated, self-driven Teacher and Lawyer with a strong foundation of multifaceted skills. I am passionate about social justice and this is reflected in both my professional and personal life.
Having worked in the legal profession for almost 20 years, firstly as a legal secretary and paralegal and then as a Lawyer, I have a unique insight into the context in which the Legal Studies and Civics curriculum sits. I am particularly interested in:
- Constitutional law
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and rights
- International human rights
- Australian history
- Australian politics
- Tenancy law
- Refugee laws and policy
- Wills and probate
- Commercial litigation
- Family violence laws and policy
As a Teacher I continue to learn, and am currently taking some steps into the world of computer programming with the development of this website. I am also in my final semester of a Masters of Teaching (Secondary) at Monash University, due to be completed in October 2017.
