Music is not what I do, It’s who I am. In 2008 I received a National Excellence in Music Education Award. I play a number of different instruments and have had the privilege of performing all over the world. I performed for Prince Charles and Princess Diana, and when in Rome, I performed for the Pope. Teaching, sharing my passion and bringing people together to make music is what I live for. Witnessing students having that light bulb moment and seeing an audience moved. It’s just so special. Seeing our girls perform is what truly makes my day. I am focussed on bringing all of the Performing Arts together at Strathcona and further enhancing the performance opportunities and experiences for everyone in all facets of performance

Having worked as an Engineer, a Mathematics and Physics teacher for the past 9 years, I am excited to be able to combine my passion for girls’ education and STEM learning areas as I join the team at Strathcona as Head of Mathematics. Strathcona has a wonderful Mathematics department and I am looking forward to working with them closely to provide the best opportunities and challenges for our girls. Apart from my passion for women’s education, I am also an advocate for animals, their rights and welfare.
