Personal profile

Research interests

As Senior Teaching Fellow - Public Relations at Bond University, I am engaged in delivering key public relations subjects to undergraduates and postgraduates. I joined Bond in January 2010 to bring extensive professional experience developed during more than 20 years working in corporate communications and related fields. This diverse experience, for which I regularly received commendations, includes management and technical roles in corporate communications across a broad range of corporate, government, community and consulting organisations. I developed extensive expertise in directing and managing programs, resources, people and finance across multiple projects.

This industry experience is central to my teaching approach; that of ensuring student learning is relevant and applied through bringing together real life and current events, industry professionals and authentic projects to actively engage students throughout the learning experience, thereby supporting their transition to becoming public relations professionals. This approach has been recognised through a national citation for outstanding contribution to student learning, and university and student teaching awards.

My PhD research is in the area of pro bono public relations practice, its impact on reputation, professionalism, and society. Earlier work has focused on shareholder communication in public companies and exploring active learning teaching strategies to encourage class participation with a focus on engaging students in deeper learning.  I actively support volunteering in the community, not-for-profit sector.
