What does life look for you now?

I work as an Education Officer in the Australian Army teaching writing, critical thinking, and training development. I am married to Raymond Fulcher and we have a nine-year old son, Elijah. As I am currently posted to Robertson Barracks, we live in Darwin. I expect to be posted to Albury/Wodonga in 2018 in order to develop eLearning training packages.

Tell us what you are passionate about?

I love my husband and my son; enhancing their happiness and well-being inspires everything I do. My favourite place is the Victorian High Country where we own a property at the base of Mt. Feathertop. In my professional life, I am deeply committed to developing soldiers' writing skills.

When you were young, what were you hoping to be when you grew up?


What is your favourite Radford moment?

Mr. O'Regan's Year 7 geography classes.

Do you have a particular role model or inspirational figure from Radford or now?

My Year 7 geography teacher, Mr. O'Regan because of his funny anecdotes and innovative educational games.

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

Very difficult. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

Did your further study or career go exactly as you'd planned?

No. I assumed I would work in higher education research. Now I am a commissioned officer in the Australian Defence Force.

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

Your future is not predetermined. It is always changing and you always have choices.

What advice do you have for current students?

Work on a five-year plan.

Where are you now?
