Candidate Summary
I’m an accomplished HR and Recruitment Professional managing my own consulting practice in Toronto, Canada. I believe that there is need to promote the University of Melbourne more in North America. The University is well known of course but the presence is not as strong here as in Asia-Pacific. I would like to be an ambassador to promote the faculty, its offering and contribution to knowledge in this part of the world. I think also there is scope for organizing more events with alumni here and bringing more solidarity.

I am proud to be a University of Melbourne alumna. I believe that I possess the skills and means to be a contributing member to the council.
