I graduated with a BBS in Business with Spanish from GMIT and worked in international business for several years.
I returned to education in 2004 and completed a Higher Diploma in Education with NUI Maynooth, graduating as a Spanish and Business Teacher. I taught both subjects for over 11 years and in 2015 I returned to NUI Maynooth to complete a Post Graduate Diploma in Educational Guidance Counselling. I graduated with first-class honours and transitioned into the role of Guidance Counsellor. I feel privileged to be using my skills and knowledge base to provide career guidance and counselling to students. I graduated as a Droichead Mentor in 2017 furthering my skills in supporting young people in the next phase of their career journey.
I graduated as an Instructional Leader in 2018, ensuring that I provide students with a quality learning and teaching experience in the classroom.
I have a particular passion for supporting senior cycle students in their career planning process. I listen carefully to students and support them with their unique goals. I help students to reflect upon their attributes, skills, experience, aptitudes, drivers and interests - all with the aim of finding a theme that may be of interest to them.
