I have worked in the international education sector for 15 years in roles covering learning abroad, student recruitment, marketing and transnational education, and student services and advising. I am currently the learning abroad manager at Western Sydney University, where I oversee the inbound and outbound exchange and study abroad program.
Some of my areas of passion include the development of first-year learning abroad opportunities, removing barriers to participation for students, establishing student-centered programming and the development of improved systems and procedures to enhance the student experience.
I am a graduate of The Australian National University with a Bachelor of Asian Studies focusing on Asian politics, history, and religion, and Arabic. During my bachelor studies, I received a Kuwait Government scholarship to participate in a semester-based, immersive in-country Arabic language learning abroad program at Kuwait University.
