Fiona is a qualified Social Worker with experience working in rural and urban areas and in domestic and international contexts. Fiona has primarily worked with children, youth and families in a range of roles from child support, to children with disabilities, to kinship care to higher education.
Fiona has been working in the tertiary sector for the past 8 years and has been at MRC for the last year. Fiona enjoys the diversity of working with so many different and talented staff at MRC, of getting to know all the residents that live here, and of supporting and mentoring them as they transition to life in Australia and as they become independent adults. Having worked with youth for many years, Fiona has a solid understanding of the many challenges that may be encountered by students and their resulting support needs, and has an open door policy to residents who need to talk or want assistance.
Fiona is well connected with a range of other professional support services, as well as services at Macquarie University, and is able to link students in with these should they be required.
In her free time, Fiona enjoys socialising with family and friends, spending time in the countryside, hiking, and spends many hours reading books.
