What does life look for you now?

I currently have the role of Business Manager at Aranda Primary School. It is a position I never thought I would hold but it is one that I absolutely love. My career goal was to work in the Olympic Games movement, however my career didnt follow that direction, and I am so pleased it didnt. I can't imagine not doing what I currently do as a School Business Manager.

How easy was it to decide what to do in life?

I always loved organising people and events. The field of event management wasn't well known about when I finished at Radford. However I knew a career in organising events and people was certainly for me. Stepping into a Bachelor Degree in Sport and Tourism Management with an Event Management major through the University of Canberra was the perfect start to a fantastic career.

What do you know now, that you wish you'd known when you were at Radford?

Your time at Radford provides a fantastic basis for a life of success. But it does not define you as a person. There is a big wide world out there for you to explore and grow in!
