I have been working at ANU in Work Health and Safety (WHS) since February 2020. I am currently the WHS Manager for the College of Engineering, Computing and Cybernetics (CECC). I joined AUSA in 2020, following the advice of Xin Li. Xin’s enthusiasm for work health and safety is contagious and he has been a great mentor for me. I still miss working with Xin at ANU.

I live in a small town outside of Canberra called Bungendore. I love animals and can often be found with my menagerie at home.

I studied Aquatic Resource management at Central Queensland University in Rockhampton and Coastal Resource Management at Southern Cross University in Lismore, in the mid-90’s. I spent many years working at CSIRO in Canberra before changing careers into Work Health and Safety about 5 years ago. I have a Cert IV and Diploma in WHS.I am interested in Occupational Hygiene, managing psychosocial hazards in the workplace and raising awareness about safety in the workplace.

I look forward to playing a more active role in AUSA sharing information and resources.
