I am an associate certified professional member, and state manager for QLD, of the Australian Library and Information Association (AALIA CP), and a current committee member of the Australasian Research Management Society (ARMS).
As outlined below I have completed both a BA (Hons) in Philosophy at an undergraduate level and a Master of Information Management.
Professionally, I have an extensive library and information science industry knowledge, project management, stakeholder engagement, communication, and critical thinking skillset. Through my public library service and academic programs, I have developed a strong reference skillset in primary and secondary research, data management, scholarly communication, and information management. I have many years of retail management experience, previous to my move into the information sector, which required a customer-focused and client-centered approach to my work.
There is also a charitable cause that is close to my heart. I founded and run a registered charity called The Sleigh Bell Foundation. This charity aims to provide support during the Christmas period for disadvantaged families on the Sunshine Coast, QLD (www.thesleighbellfoundation.com).
