When did you join the transport and logistics industry and what have you done?
In 2011, I was the senior training mentor for an RTO that had 76 qualifications on scope, that included warehousing qualifications. In 2013, I was appointed Training manager for a national warehouse training company, which involved training students in a simulated warehouse, liaising with warehouse industry stakeholders and providing forklift and order picker training. I also worked with warehouse and logistics companies, providing training and support for their warehouse traineeship programs.
How did you become part of the VET industry?
Throughout my career, the positions I undertook were always of a learning and development nature. And then in 2003, I completed the VET Certificate IV training and assessment qualification and started my own business as a Learning Development Consultant. In this role I undertook a variety of instructional design work, developing learning and assessment material, consulting on training and business skills development, as well as being a trainer and assessor for a variety of industries.

How do you spend your time away from work?
When I’m not at work, I am either hanging out with friends, being involved in my son’s activities, pottering around in my home and garden, or enjoying a good book, if I have time. I am also involved in the local life saving club where my sons and I are active participants.
