Why did I choose to become a lecturer?

Being a lecturer was never on my radar as an undergraduate student. However, through my coaching experiences and integration with different schools, athletes and groups of people I found that teaching and coaching were one in the same. I had a passion for sharing knowledge and helping people fulfill their underlying potential. I have had several key influencers in my life who I feel had a direct impact on my path, priorities and confidence in myself, and I can honestly say I would not be where I am without their support and guidance. Lecturing allowed me to satisfy each of these needs, and I endeavour to be one of those influencers for others and help them find their path and confidence both in their careers, and in life.

I have completed my Masters in Sport and Exercise Science which is the base qualification for my academic portfolio.

Outside of this I have been proactive in obtaining numerous additional qualifications to further enhance my understanding and application of knowledge in this field. These have included a Certificate in Tertiary Education, an International Association of Athletics Federations level III lecturer’s qualification, as well as numerous short courses and upskilling workshops. These have been instrumental in staying at the forefront of the Sport Science sector and providing me with relevant and appropriate information which I can then disseminate to the students I teach.
