I joined People Outdoors inn July 2021 and I am loving my new role as the Assistant Camp Coordinator. I have worked in Education for many years as a Primary School Teacher and then in Special Education and Casual Relief Teaching. I have been lucky enough to teach some of our campers over the last few years!

I grew up with a love of camping and the great outdoors. Our family spent many summers camping along the Sapphire Coast of NSW. Unfortunately, the last 2 summers haven’t been as fun, having to evacuate in 2019 due to the bushfires and then again last summer we had to evacuate again as COVID threatened to keep us locked out of Victoria.

Fortunately, I have been lucky enough to have traveled across all states/territories and capital cities of Australia.

My partner, son and I love a good road trip and every opportunity we get we head out (which hasn’t been as often through COVID sadly!). There’s nothing more relaxing than sitting around a campfire with a glass of wine and great company!

My other hobbies include going out to live music and theatre shows follow Collingwood in the AFL, AFLW and Netball, and Melbourne United in the NBL.

I am super excited to have joined this wonderful organisation and am enjoying getting to know our wonderful campers and staff. I love seeing the joy it brings to campers and their families. I look forward to meeting you all over the coming months and wish you all a wonderful and safe Christmas and 2022!
