About Me

I am a lecturer with the School of Education and the Arts at the Cairns Campus of Central Queensland University. My research interests include narrative inquiry, autoethnography, creative writing and teacher wellbeing. I am currently researching the use of humour and storytelling in teacher education.

My teaching career began in 1997 when I was living in the UK. I initially worked as a primary school teacher and then changed to secondary teaching in 2002. After moving to Australia in 2004, I continued working as an English teacher before taking on the leadership roles of Head of Department and Deputy Principal.
