I completed a Bachelor of Art majoring in Communication Studies and English and Comparative Literature at Murdoch University in Western Australia. Several years later, while employed at ECU I completed a Master of Education through online study at the University of Southern Queensland.
I worked as an Instructional Designer at ECU, dividing my time between the development of print and online course materials, and working collaboratively with Academic Staff to complete course accreditation processes and assist with overall course design.
Since then, I have worked in a variety of jobs and am now semi-retired. I have always enjoyed writing and other creative pursuits such as spinning, sewing, knitting, and crochet. I also enjoy beach walks, travel, and nature.
