For a young girl who embarked on her journey as a prospective journalism student – uncertain about her options and career goals – I have come a long way. UQ has facilitated my journey and now I am exactly where I want to be in my career.
I graduated from the University of Queensland in 2012 with a Bachelor of Psychological Science (Hons) and a Master of Organisational Psychology. I am now a registered psychologist, practising as a Senior Consultant for an Organisational Psychology Consulting business in the western suburbs of Brisbane. I have now had experience working across a number of industries including healthcare, mining, local city council, higher education, rail, aviation, meat processing and commercial practices. My education at UQ equipped me with the tools I need to deliver on client needs in the areas of recruitment and selection, job design, team processes, change management, resilience and safety culture. I am so fortunate to have received my professional training at a School ranked in the world’s top 10!
UQ was a permanent fixture for eight years of my life, with experiences that include building a strong network of friends and professional connections, living at Emmanuel College, completing undergraduate and postgraduate studies, working as a Research Assistant and later working on a range of professional projects for the School of Psychology. UQ has played a very influential role in my life and I look forward to maintaining my connection as an Alumna in the years to come.
