After leaving school at 15 I realised when my children were at school what I had missed out on and so after some pre tertiary study I was accepted into the undergraduate Library Studies course here at what was at that time WAIT. I graduated from what by that time had become Curtin University in 1990.
While I was studying I was lucky enough to get a job as a student assistant in the Curtin University Library and once qualified it was my ambition to come and work in the Library using my exciting new qualification as a Librarian. I was fortunate to secure a temporary position and stayed with the University Library for the next 12 years. During this time I undertook another undergraduate degree and then a research Masters, both at Curtin. I then moved to Murdoch University for a few years to work in their then joint use Library in Rockingham. After that I returned to Curtin and have since had a number of interesting and challenging roles. My whole focus over this time has been on supporting our students and researchers to achieve their ambitions through study and research and being part of the Library team that does this at Curtin is both an ongoing joy and inspiration.
