She has recently enrolled in a Bachelor of Teaching (Primary) to build upon her current degree and extend her skills and knowledge as an early childhood educator.

Joel has been part of the Willows Team since 2013.

Joel credits being a single parent to his 10 year old son as inspiration for wating to work with children of all ages.

‘I believe that children learn through watching, listening and most of all doing, all while feeling safe and loved in their environment.’

Joel endeavours to further his studies by attaining his Diploma of Children Services in the near future and gain qualifications in an area of special interest by studying for a Diploma in Disability Support.

When not at the Willows, Joel can be found supporting the Manly Sea Eagles or camping and fishing. He would also like to share that his favourite colour is purple and he loves to have a good laugh and a joke.
