3. Where did you work before AAIR?
I started my career in the higher education space as a desktop publisher in the Curriculum and Program Development department at Box Hill Institute. In the seven years I worked at the Institute, I was also an editor, sessional teacher, and ultimately PLR1 Coordinator, where I managed the development of learner and trainer resources at the Institute. I also co-ran writing workshops for the teachers.
From there I moved into my beloved role of APQN2 Administrator at the Australian Universities Quality Agency (AUQA) under the leadership of David Woodhouse. During this time, I also did some consulting with other quality assurance networks, namely the Arab Network for Quality Assurance in Higher Education, and the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education.
At the sad closing of AUQA, I had a short-lived position with TEQSA3 as the International Liaison Officer, before going completely solo and running my own business from home, of which AAIR is one of my clients. I love my laptop lifestyle, as it affords me the flexibility to lead a well-balanced life.
I’d love to connect with you on LinkedIn.
