Gail is the Director of Wyndham Tech School. She started her career working in the manufacturing, energy and telecommunication sectors, with a passion for technology she decided to teach it and moved into vocational education and training.
She now works squarely in innovation and describes herself as an 'internal entrepreneur', taking on start-up projects that challenge the status quo. Recently she led the creation of the VET modern blended learning model that was benchmarked against industry’s best, winning the Australian Institute Training Development award in 2017 and coming runner up on the world stage in London in 2018. Following this project, she led the creation of VU’s Innovation Space at the Sunshine Skills Hub, the creation of the Cybersecurity Training Centre at St Albans and more recently the design and relaunch of the Wyndham Tech School in Werribee.
Gail serves on the board of Future Connect, is an advisory member of the Digital Skills Organisation and a member of Wyndham City Council’s Learning City Portfolio.
Gail is a passionate advocate for Melbourne’s West, believing through strong partnerships with government, industry and the community that VU has what it takes to become a global leader by 2028, and in doing so help the community we serve reach its full potential.
