My Profile & Skills

I am passionate about holistic health and early development. I believe in sustainability, caring for the environment, healthy eating, staying active, and continually learning about the world we live in. I have eight years experience in early childhood education and care. I spent 4 years working for an Illawarra based company. I then spent almost 4 years working overseas in London, United Kingdom while traveling throughout Europe.

I’ve been part of strong teams, worked independently and enacting team goals and initiatives to achieve high workplace standards through the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority and The UK Government Department OFSTED. I’ve been involved in two accreditation processes achieving both ‘Outstanding’ and ‘Exceeding’ quality ratings.

I have observation, analysis, and assessment skills, great interpersonal, problem solving and creative thinking skills. I’m also flexible, reliable and willing to learn. I’ve built great communication skills using different platforms (both written and verbal) and have good attention to detail, OH&S awareness, and leadership skills.

I’ve welcomed continuous professional development in areas like customer service, administration, child protection, safeguarding, fire marshalling, safe food-handling, education and health.
