I am currently working in a dual role as a Lecturer in Medical Education as a member of the School Assessment Leadership Team and a Lecturer of Optometry at the School of Medicine, Deakin University. As a healthcare professional I have thirteen years’ experience working across two disciplines, radiation therapy and optometry, often as a clinical supervisor and educator.
My scholarly interests include clinical assessment, curriculum development and the role simulation and technology play in developing the professional identify and skills of a health care practitioner. I am passionate about innovation and recently was awarded the WJB Banks Vice Chancellors award with my colleagues for our work on developing virtual international clinical placements at Deakin University.
I decided to apply for an Associate Fellowship with the Australian & New Zealand Association for Health Professional Educators (ANZAHPE) to continue to be part of conversations and opportunities that inspire and engage ventures beyond the norms of education. I look forward to being part of this community of practice.
