Getting your head around the language, polices, and process at university can be difficult. I’m here to support you when you are faced with challenging situations that may arise during your time as a Charles Sturt student.

I have been working in student facing roles at Charles Sturt for 5 years and am passionate about equitable access to higher education for students from diverse backgrounds and ensuring students have a voice at our university.
