My role as Coach Advisor in Unitec's new Course Development unit requires me to negotiate with programmes and develop teams to engage in developing both new and existing courses for Unitec's blended learning environment.

I have previously worked as a lecturer in foundation education teching mathematics and physics, at a high school teaching mathematics and dance and as a physiotherapist.
