Profile Information

Extensive previous experience in leading functional, large-scale and complex simulation strategies. Through my instigation, leadership, influence, collaboration and negotiation with a range of key stakeholders including University Executive, academics, technical staff and students, the role of Coordinator of Simulation for the Faculty of Health Sciences as an academic lead was established. My employment for the past five years has been as the Coordinator of Health Simulation, Faculty of Health Sciences, Australian Catholic University (ACU). This role leads the simulation agenda for the Faculty of Health Sciences; collaborates with large numbers of stakeholders within a complex, large multi-site organisation; oversees and provides a resource for 6 Schools and 13 Health disciplines across 5 campuses in three Australian States and one Territory; leads the design of simulation facilities, simulation activities, curriculum integration, professional development of academic and technical staff to meet the needs of a range of health disciplines; fosters a culture of scholarship, continuous improvement and innovation in simulation-based learning; and ensures any simulation activity is sustainable. My PhD explored the potential to bridge simulation learning and workplace environments by employing a theoretical approach of workplace learning to university-based simulation design.
