I have worked in the career development sector for 20 years in a diverse range of organisations. Most recently I am a contractor for the Tertiary Education Commission, providing career support to job seekers and the public. I currently also work at Habit Health on the Employment Service in Schools MSD pilot programme and run my own private career consultancy. I have many years’ experience in education - in university career centres, secondary schools and in an industry training organisation. I am a professional member of the Career Development Association of NZ (CDANZ), and a registered secondary school teacher.

In 2019 I established Career Talk, my private practice, in which I assist people of all ages both individually and in groups, with their career development planning and transitions.

I have extensive experience working with young people - one to one, in groups, and through programme development of industry taster courses. For 8 years until 2020 I worked in secondary schools as a career development practitioner. I have a thorough knowledge of tertiary study and training providers both in New Zealand, and universities overseas. I help students consider their interests, abilities, skills, values, and purpose, to assist them in making plans for their first steps beyond school, training or tertiary study.
