I have  been working in the Early Childhood Sector for many years, both in the Redlands and across Brisbane.

I have been involved with Playgroup Australia, Childcare Centres, Libraries and networking groups to develop my skills as an educator and a manager.

I am passionate about Early Childhood education and care and enjoy working both in the rooms and managing Cleveland Early Learning Centre.
