About Me

I am a primary school teacher (BED/BA International Studies (Japanese)) with a Masters in Gifted Education.

I currently am a librarian at a school in Sydney , work online with teachers who are learning about gifted education and also teach gifted children.

I live in Sydney with my husband and two energetic and creative children (6 and 3).

I am a budding gardener, chicken wrangler and stingless bee keeper.

I love educating children and adults in any area I can find expertise in and have found that books provide a great springboard to start really important conversations.

I love getting outside and am passionate about trying to make the world a better place, even if it is just in my own household for now. I think we all think life is too hard, convenience is too easy and the world will be ok if we keep treating it and the people who are different the way we do.

I hope that by picking up a book and starting a conversation you can make a difference in your and others lives.

  1. I’m an author, wildlife photographer and publisher of 15 True to Life Books, educating children about endangered animals. To create my books I follow animals in their natural habitats to tell their story through photographs and educational videos. I’ve had some amazing adventures in Africa, India, Borneo, Sri Lanka, China and recently Costa Rica for my latest book, Sleepy the Sloth. Would you like me to send a book for review or add the titles to your instagram? see http://www.truetolifebooks.com.au
