Position: Regenerate Program Manager
Important aspects in my life are respectful and genuine relationships, my family, meeting people, working with children, art and culture, skiing, bush walking and being in the outdoors. I simply love sharing and nurturing all these things and more! My career to date has involved working in outdoor education, student development, and health and well-being. Platforms have involved outdoor and environmental programs/ camps/ expedition journeys and leadership courses, administration, staff management, program and risk management, behaviour change and strategy. I am a registered VIT teacher and have over 20 years experience in both the education and youth sectors.
Personally and professionally, educating and enriching people on their life journey is one aspect that I am very enthusiastic about. Creating connections, opportunities, leading, caring and working for other people no matter what their challenge, has been truly rewarding and inspiring. I believe investing in community, our social capital, the natural environment, implementing, managing and servicing partnerships within any arena is vital for a healthy future.
In my work, I am sensitive and value the positive relationships that develop with colleagues and participants. In this role as co-manager of the Adventure Works Regenerate program, I am excited to further my experience and knowledge in Bush Adventure Therapy in partnership with the Good Samaritan Inn.
My I am an organised person with an eye for detail, can reliably work within budgets, manage contract services and have well developed ‘situational’ leadership and time management skills.
