I first came to Aka Aka School in Term 3 2015 as a relieving principal and was appointed permanently the following term. I am passionate about providing an environment where kids can flourish by being allowed to be their best selves, and adults feel valued and supported.

My husband and I live and farm in Aka Aka. Currently we have one son at Aka Aka School in Year 6. Our other three children (and myself) have also had the privilege of attending Aka Aka School. Prior to my current role as a manager/owner in our farming business I spent 13 years as a Human Resources Advisor and Recruitment Team Leader with the Queensland Department of Education.

My intention is to support the great staff at Aka Aka School in providing a well-rounded learning environment where all students have the opportunity to achieve their academic potential and to develop their individual talents.
