She holds an Honours degree in Occupational Therapy, a Masters degree in Higher Education and a PhD in Health Sciences. Her previous experience in health included being responsible for setting up and managing large institutional based services. Over the last 15 years in Higher Education, she has actively engaged in Discipline, School, Faculty, College and University administration, management and leadership in various roles, including periods as Head of Department (UDW), School Director (UDW), Dean’s Assistant (Faculty of Health Sciences) and more recently on the College Reorganisation Task Team (CRTT).
