I am a Bull Creek Primary School parent with two daughters attending the school. We moved to the area at the start of 2020 and love the green spaces, family-friendly-community vibe, and the people. I’ve been involved in the School Board since early 2022, and am happy to take on the role of board chair in 2023.
I have over 12 years’ experience working for the State and Federal Governments; previous roles have included work in policy, project management, grant programs, committee and board governance, communications, and stakeholder management. I enjoy the diversity of work in government, and am motivated to make a real and positive difference to people and communities in WA.

I have been on the Board of Bull Creek Primary School since 2020, and have enjoyed the opportunities it brings to connect with the Executive Team and hear about the priorities and directions of the school.
As a member of the Board, I hope that my educational background brings perspective and knowledge of the Department directions as we work together to ensure our school provides the best quality education available for our children.
“I’m a parent representative on the Board. My daughter has attended since Kindy and my son will too once he is old enough. It’s fun taking my kids to the school that I have so many positive memories of.
I have over 15 years of experience in Education, Health and Disability sector roles so I’m familiar with the various demands on both schools and families. I’m currently taking a break from full time therapist work to focus on parenting. I appreciate the opportunity to be able to support the school through my role on the Board.”
