Career Profile:

I absolutely love working with children and am considering doing my Masters of Education to be a Science Teacher.  I have experience as an Educator through SPELTS and have had involvement with workshops with classrooms.  I have also worked as a Nanny / Tutor / After School Carer with 6 years experience with all age groups.  I have have independant supervision of toddlers through to teenage years where I have been responsible for school pick up, attending after school activities/lessons/sports, preparing afternoon tea and evening meal (I love to cook!) and I have also been a housesitter for one of the Professors.

A graduate of Masters (Hons) of Marine Science and Management from UTS, occassionally volunteering for the Ichthyology department at the Australian Museum. I have a keen eye for detail, excellent communication skills and an enthusiasm to assist others. I have a dedicated and hard- working attitude to the work environment and am eager and quick to learn new skills.  

Child/Student Experience:

SPROUTS (Student Promotional Representative Of UTS)                                          
June 2018 to June 2019

This role involved coordinating groups of students around UTS campus, answering questions about UTS courses, facilities and general campus life. I represented as a SPROUTS for the science faculty of UTS, this involved passing lab inductions and having a firm knowledge of lab and safety protocols for UTS. This role also involved strong communication skills, the ability to work as a leader with the community and the flexibility to work as part of a team and autonomously. During my time as a SPROUTS I developed an outreach workshop and presentation focused on environmental science themes, as there was no representation for environmental science in the outreach materials available for UTS Science.

Kumon Maths & English Tutors                                                                                       
August 2017 to June 2018

Tutored classrooms of children (ranging from primary to high school) in Maths and English skills, following the Kumon style of teaching and learning assistance. Engaged in a fast-paced environment relying on Math, English and communication skills. Employed team work skills with other tutors to delegate and manage classes to maximise the learning experience and provide concise, patient assistance to students. Required being prepared for classes, using keen listening, anticipating student issues and being adaptable to swapping tutoring roles.

Other Work History & Experience:

John Morris Group                                                                                                            
October 2019 to June 2020

At John Morris Group I worked as a Product Manager, which involved taking care of a range of brands of scientific equipment, I control pricing and am the point of information for technical queries for the application of the equipment of my range. I started at this company as an Internal Sales Specialist where I worked in a dynamic team environment to provide customer service for the purchase of science equipment. This involved collaboration with logistics, accounts and management and learning a large variety of new equipment and systems quite quickly. This role also entailed strong communication skills, interpersonally, over the phone and via email to deal with customers from a variety of scientific backgrounds, from universities to industry professionals and researchers. I still use the skills from my Internal Sales role in my Product Manager position, but in a level of more authority and responsibility.

Australian Museum Ichthyology Dept. Volunteering                                                 
January to October 2019

I assisted to help Australian Museum’s Ichthyology department in sorting, handling and preserving the samples collected in 2018 from Oman and other collection events. This involved knowledge of lab safety protocol, proficiency working with hazardous materials and delicate samples, tissue sampling, working autonomously and under supervision. This also exercised and expanded my taxonomy skills and through cataloguing, using the EMu (Electronic Museum) System, allowed me to be familiar with highly detailed scientific record data entry and management.

Scientific Volunteering (Macquarie University & UTS)                                   
January 2018 to October 2019

I assisted UTS Professor David Booth with artificial reef assembly for the Sydney harbour Opera House habitat enrichment project. This involved teamwork, communication, heavy lifting, technical assembly and quality control. I also assisted Professor Booth with analysing potential hybrid Dascyllus species found near Sydney, this involved sample transport, profiling photography and sub- sampling tissue for the Australian museum to compare the genetics of the potential hybrid to the suspected parent species. I have also assisted Professor Booth’s PhD student Minami Sasaki, with capturing Mados and Indo-Pacific Sergeants with the clove oil and hand-net technique. In this PhD project I also assisted with sample transport, Ikejime technique and recording/taking tissue samples from deceased specimens.

I assisted Postdoctoral Research Fellow Jeffrey Kelleway with field monitoring at Towra Point on several visits. In this role I helped use a Theodolite, RTK, collected soil core samples and deployed water loggers. I also assisted on a visit to Bobbin Head, where we evaluated nearby wetland habitats and discussed with the Gibberagong Environmental Education Centre on projects and site- monitoring for their K-12 study program.

Ocean Watch Marine Pest Project                                                                                       
June 2019 to July 2019

This two week project involved data entry to map the outreach of marine pest educational materials. This data entry included specifying which species were included in the educational materials for each region.
