I am a passionate educator and even as I enter my 25th year in the industry, I remain a strong advocate for quality Australian international education services. I am a founder, current Board member and Principal Executive Officer of APC Group comprising of Australian Pacific College, English Unlimited and Australian Pacific Travel and Tourism with campuses in NSW, QLD and VIC, having now helped over 70,000 international students realise their goals through both ELICOS and VET programs since 1994.
I am a former accountant with Ernst & Young specialising in audit and business services and have looked after clients, both small and large businesses, across different sectors such as Kambala School, Coca-Cola, Woolworths, Commonwealth Bank, Jones Lang Wootton, Ramsay Health Care and Wesley Mission.
Over the past 25 years, I have served on various industry advisory and State committees including Austrade, Department of Education and Training, Australian Council for Private Education and Training and English Australia NSW Branch. More recently, I was on the organising committee for the inaugural symposium to form an association for Education Agents in Australia, which was held at the Sydney Town Hall. Together with my professional experience in quality assurance and audit and my continuing active involvement in Australian international education, I look forward to building on NEAS’s strong foundation to help guide a robust and sustainable international education sector built on world-leading quality standards.
