I have been living in Australia for the past 8 years since moving from the U.K. I am passionate about Early Education and Care for children and believe strong foundations will lead to children reaching their full potential and ultimately becoming capable, compassionate and contented individuals. I began working with children at the age of sixteen and knew this was where my future lay. I have worked in various roles and with children from culturally diverse backgrounds and children with special education needs. I made the transition to become an Early childhood trainer as I am a firm believer that quality training and support can aid Educators in reaching their full potential, therefore assisting the industry to gain the respect and recognition it deserves.


My role as an early childhood education and care educator has allowed me to play and have fun with children for the past eight years. I now work for Rowe Training and I have been very inspired by the hard work and creativity of all our students. My pedagogical beliefs in working with adults are based on being supportive to build and develop good relationships. I believe being successful does not have to be filled with struggles, yet it can happen smoothly with support and help of others. That is why it is valuable to enrol with Rowe Training because as your trainer, and with my team I will support whatever needs you required. I have been so lucky to work in such a wonderful Career and I  love learning more from every visit I have with students.
