Experience, Interests and affiliations

My work experience has been in education and business. I commenced work as a qualified school teacher and taught at two different schools before moving into
corporate life. I did some teaching in London before winning an educational marketing position in the Walt Disney Media Education – UK office for two years. On return to NZ and after completing a B.Com in marketing I gained a marketing position with Phillips Electrical, and next took management positions for an Electrical wholesaler and OTC Office Supplies. I then set up my own business offering marketing and competitive Intelligence services and grew this successfully for a number of years.

I returned to academia and worked as a visiting marketing lecturer to Unitec and MIT. A full time position was accepted at AIS, and then I moved into a full time position as lecturer and paper leader at AUT University for 5 years. I then took a full time position at Queensland University of Technology (Australia) as a lecturer programme manager. Finally in 2010, I returned to NZ, to start at ICL Business School. My previous position was Manager – Business Programmes at ICL Graduate Business School until taking on a new role Pathways position in late 2017. This role involves managing pathways for current students and those leaving as well as Alumni.
