I have been actively involved in education industry since 2001 with a focus to provide quality training to both domestic and international students across the spectrum of learning disciplines. During the last 19 years I worked in a private RTO, TAFE, and University with focus on workplace trainees and apprentices, indigenous education, corporate training, curriculum development, innovative learning practices and compliance.
I understand the challenges of international students as I started my journey in Australia as an international student. My team at KCBT is dedicated to high standards to ensure our students receive the most out of their learning journey.

With over nine years of experience in strategic marketing and end to end event promotions, I have helped companies and brands to promote their products and services in a variety of events mostly focused on the South American and European international student market. Such experience has enabled me to build relationships with a large part of the representatives of the education industry in Perth WA, as well as, acquiring a deep understanding of the students’ needs, challenges, and expectations.
My goal at KCBT is to build, maintain and nurture the relationship between school and our valued commercial partners ethically and openly, and together help the students to pave their ways for a brighter future.

Originally I studied to be a primary school teacher, specialising in English and Society and Environment. After completing my Bachelor degree I lived and worked in South America, which allowed me to find my passion in teaching ESL. After returning to Australia, and having found the area that I loved to work in, I completed further studies including CELTA and a Post Graduate Certificate in TESOL, which allowed me to continue TESOL work in Australia. I am now studying Psychology to allow me to further support the students I work with.
In my time as an ESL teacher, I have taught in both the Certificate of Spoken and Written English (CSWE) and ELICOS curriculum across all levels. I was invited to join KCBT as the English Coordinator in October 2017, a team I am grateful to be a part of.
My favourite part of this job is the amazing people I get to spend my time with. I have heard so many incredible stories and am lucky to have been able to listen and learn so much about the people and world around me. I look forward to hearing many more fun and amazing stories.
