At ELS we have a highly trained team of facilitators, more commonly known as ELFs' (Equitable Learning Facilitators). They come with a range of experience and expertise across the learning and disability sector. Our ELFs' are extremely dedicated to their roles and to our students.
Here's a brief introduction to each of our fabulous team members.
I have a background as an adult educator and life coach and have been at UNSW since 2019. I am passionate about education and people. Helping students access their academic potential is the best, and helping my team facilitate that process is just as rewarding.
To relax, I crochet, I swim in the ocean and read compelling novels.
Before joining ELS at UNSW in 2018, I worked as an Occupational Therapist in health, disability, and education.
I enjoy having the opportunity to work collaboratively with students to delve into the unique ways that their condition is impacting on their educational experience and from there develop a plan to support them to access their studies. It is an honour to be able to take a small role in helping students achieve their goals.
To unwind I enjoy going for a swim, listening to music, having a massage, walking my puppy, or relaxing in the bath with a book.
I have a background in speech pathology and have been working at UNSW since October 2022. I am passionate about celebrating diversity and supporting neurominority students.
I unwind by walking, reading books with my son, and browsing social media.
I've been at UNSW ELS since 2020 and I have a background in Special Education as a Learning Support teacher. I really enjoy being able to support students, so they have the additional flexibility they need to complete their studies to the best of their ability.
Something I do to de-stress is SUP boarding around Sydney's amazing beaches.
I joined the ELS team at UNSW in November, 2022. I have a background in Occupational Therapy and am passionate about advocating for equity and inclusion within both the healthcare and education systems. I find the most rewarding part of being an ELF is the opportunity to meet and work with such a diverse range of students.
To unwind I enjoy walking my greyhound Figs, going to the gym or watching the latest addictive Netflix series.
I have a background in special education and I've worked at UNSW since 2014. Until recently, I worked as an Academic Support Officer. I love assisting students to reach their potential and seeing them graduate.
I relax by going on long walks, playing with my daughter's dog, and reading.
I have a background in disability inclusion and human services and have worked in the university sector since 2000. I am passionate about amplifying the voice of those with lived experience of disability and intersectional equity identities and creating a safe space for students to learn and develop to the fullest of their potential.
To relax, I love to read and spend time with my children and (worlds cutest) dog.

I have a background in Social and Political Sciences and been working on administrative roles with UNSW since 2019. I am passionate about supporting and advocating for diversity in every way possible.
I usually like to unwind by playing guitar, watching YouTube, baking, and watching my cats play.
