My Mission


Digital technologies are becoming increasingly necessary to participate in society. We use digital technologies to communicate, connect, seek support, engage with services, shop and run businesses.

I am committed to helping people participate more fully in life by helping them develop their digital literacy skills and improve their access to digital devices and resources.

I have a particular interest in working with people with mental health issues and psychosocial disabilities, although I am open to working with people with other types of disabilities, as well as the elderly. I can also work with carers, peer-workers and workers.

I am NDIS registered (see below for details).

My Teaching Philosophy


I work to empower clients and build their confidence by helping them to take responsibility for their own learning and become independent in their use of digital technologies. I apply an experiential, hands-on approach with clients 'learning by doing'.

My own personal challenges have helped me become sensitive to the needs of people with special needs. I appreciate that many people find technology challenging. I use compassion, understanding and patience to develop and deliver customised training and/or support to individuals and groups.

My Background


I have a background in the educational technology sector as a consultant, trainer and presenter. I have a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

For over two decades I have taught people how to use a range of technologies including smartphones, tablets, computers, the Internet, social media, online learning platforms, webinar platforms, virtual worlds etc.

A list of my previous projects in the educational technology sector, including workshops and presentations can be found here.
