Why are you involved with Montessori education?

I started my journey with MIC as the Dance Specialist many years ago and I knew from the moment I walked into the College for my interview that something was very special and unique about the place. I did my research and fell in love with the concept of Montessori! It is a privilege to work for an organisation with these fundamentals.

What year did you commence at MIC?
2012

How would you describe what you do?
Wow, that’s an interesting question! I do a lot of interesting things… I have the exciting job of being the Imagineers Festival Director. I also work with the community, planning other events and liaising with clients who hire MIC for events.

What’s your favourite thing about your role?
In the morning, I can go from negotiating a sponsorship deal to organising a major act for Imagineers; in the afternoon, I can play with my huge four meter LED light up jellyfish before working with an external client to create a special event for them here on our beautiful campus. In fact, sometimes I do all of this just in a morning…! I love my job and that it is ever-changing, challenging and rewarding.
