I am the inaugural Associate Dean (Indigenous Engagement) in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at The University of Queensland. I am a Wakka Wakka and Gooreng Gooreng woman. After decades in book publishing and the literary sector, I undertook a PhD on the publishing and reading impact of Indigenous literature. My research on Indigenous creativity continues and I am a sought-after public speaker. After teaching in Creative Industries with QUT and coordinating Indigenous higher degree by research with UTS, I bring to UQ HASS a unique skill-set aimed at collaborative leadership in improving opportunities and experiences for us Mobs and for improving non-Indigenous capacity to engage effectively.
