Campaign Support Officer, Student Engagement & Support, Vice-President (Services) Monash University ▼
I also have an extensive background in event project management at Monash University where I have been employed for the last three years. During this time, I have worked on large-scale, award-winning mental health initiates such as RU OK? Day, and One World Festival. In order to implement the programs effectively, I managed key stakeholders across the university to elicit their support and partnership. My experience in these areas has developed my strategic focus as well as my practical administrative skills in Excel and Word. I am interested in translating my project management skills into an analogous organisational psychology environment.

Monash University partners with R U OK? Day, a national annual event aimed at raising suicide and depression awareness.
This years event was deemed a great success, evidenced by the participation of over 1500 staff and students in a variety of R U OK? Day activities, as well as a sense of community engendered across the five campuses.
