I have been a lecturer in sociology since 2001 at CQ University.
My eldest daughter just completed her nursing degree at USQ and is currently in the graduate program at Royal Brisbane Women's Hospital. She is the mother of my grandson, Kai.I have been working on Brisbane campus but recently return to Mackay where I lecture in the Nursing, Midwifery and Social Science School.
I received my PhD from Newcastle University in 2000. It was on the contemporary relevance of a Black radical theorist called Frantz Fanon - it looked at dynamics of race, class and the psychology of oppression.You can find out a bit about him here.
I have served as Associate Dean on Mackay campus and as Program Director (Psychology & Sociology)
I have been teaching a variety of sociology subjects in a university environment for 15 years.
