Profile

I started at the museum almost 9 years ago at kids island (now kidspace) while I was studying for my Bachelor of Teaching. After a year of study I realized the more formal style of teaching was something that I did not want to commit to but I loved the work with the under 5s on the more one to one basis and thankfully I was able to stay on in that role as a VSO. I have had the chance to work in a number of fields at the museum such as the under 5 programs; Visitor Services programs; special events such as Science in the City and in the outreach programs of Science Communication. One of the most rewarding things of all these positions is being part of the learning process for so many people of different ages and backgrounds. Despite some years in arts management, a childhood and young adulthood helping my Naturalist father in his many activities has meant being here has been a bit like coming home.
