CAREER PROFILE
Nursing has provided valuable skills that have and built upon my innate ability to empower and encourage others to achieve their desired goals. I am currently employed as a Registered Nurse Certified Midwife and education is a key component of the daily care I provide to my clients. Women in our care are often vulnerable and emotional and require nurses that are able to build a rapport through exceptional communication skills. This is essential in order to educate and encourage them in the journey through motherhood. Consistent feedback from mothers in my care as well as fellow team members has encouraged me to recognise my skill in this area and subsequently prompted me to pursue a career in education.
Equal to education is my passion for fashion design and technology. Since a very young age I can recall learning basic skills from my Mother an avid seamstress whom has forever been my mentor and inspiration. Whilst attending university it was my skills in this area that paid my way through university and has been a constant source of income since this time. My small online fashion business has been a constant source of pleasure and drives me to pursue a career that incorporates my passion for both education and of design and technology.
