What music are you loving right now?

I am absolutely loving the album 'Hope Downs' by Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. Such a good playlist to listen to as I'm walking to work!

Why do you love working at SAE?

I love building professional rapports with students and staff and being the first face that students see as they enter the building and when they leave. Working within the Student Services Team at Brisbane, is definitely a major reason as to why I love SAE. I work alongside dedicated and extremely passionate women who do everything they can to support and make the experiences for students at SAE a rewarding one. I feel so fortunate to be working within this team! 

What is the best fun fact about yourself?

I LOVE performing and watching plays! 

How do you like to spend your time outside of SAE?

Coffee shop scouting, reading, hiking and indoor climbing. I love adventuring to places that I have never been before! I spend a lot of time at the West End Markets and can be found almost every weekend at my favourite book shop.

What is your life motto?

Challenge yourself, eat colours, embrace everyday with gratitude, continue to learn 

What is your dream holiday destination?

Either Bora Bora or Ireland (where my family is from)

Are you working on any exciting projects at the moment?

Currently, I am studying my Masters in Teaching (Secondary) full-time, (one more year to go)! Once that has completed,I would love to become more involved with local Theatre companies.
