About me:

I am a Masters student in Education (eLearning & eTeaching), completed a degree in Linguistics and Teaching and have discovered that I have an insatiable hunger to learn and must combine this with technology!

I have been a counsellor and life coach for a community organization helping those at risk in life and also a teacher for a number of years in our NZ school system (Primary mainly but have 'dabbled' in ECE to Highschool). I missed study and campus life and wanted to mix and learn from different people. I came back to teach English to foreign students at the U of W and have since moved into Student Learning as a Senior Tutor (CeTTL) ( and more recently been seconded to the Faculty of Education as a Digital/Technology Coach ( . I am very fortunate to be able to use all my skills, talents and passionate interests in technology, teaching, learning and life, all in one place!

I love my 'grown-up' family (soon to be a grandparent) and try to find a balance between them, my patient husband, work, continuous study and my dog. My goal is to love life and help people to reach their full potential and to be the forever learner myself!
