I have found a role that perfectly suits my experience and knowledge, but most importantly, overlaps with my ultimate passions in life: health and nutrition, and being part of a community that helps children grow, learn and develop to their full potential. It helps that I’m also quite fond of giraffes!

I graduated with a Bachelor of Nutrition degree in 2020 and worked as a primary school teacher aide for eight years.

There was no doubt in my mind when I decided to apply for the health and drug educator role at Life Ed Queensland.

The impact Life Ed makes across Queensland

The laughs, the smiles, the questions, the conversations and comments like, ‘Oh, I wish we could stay here for the rest of the day. I want to know more!’ are the absolute highlights of my visits to each school.

“Having the opportunity to empower young minds every day to help children make healthy decisions for a bright, happy and safe future drives me to be the most impactful and engaging educator I can be.”

What’s that saying? If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life!
