Shelley came to Australia to study English as an international student and after completing a VET course she obtained permanent residence. She has worked in the education sector in both Australia and Japan, particularly in student services, training and support.
Shelley has a passion for working with students and has supported international students from diverse backgrounds through her work in language schools. This experience also familiarised her with the CRICOS, National Code and ESOS Act.
With a background in psychology, Shelley is currently undertaking a degree in Human Sciences with a major in Education Psychology. She hopes to gain a greater understanding of the psychology of the education environment and obtain theoretical and practical knowledge to support her work.
