Annie – Writing, presentations & time management
My name’s Annie, and I'm a Learning Advisor in writing with a Bachelor of Arts; Grad Dip in Creative Arts; Postgrad Dip in Teaching, as well as a sadly unfinished masters thesis. Many years ago, here at VU, I lectured in theatre; however, these days, you’ll find me at writing drop-ins as well as running Academic Writing, Time Management and Great Presentations workshops.
Whatever the level of a student, be it foundation, first year or PHD, I relish supporting that student to advance their academic writing to the next level and I look forward to meeting and assisting you soon!

I am available to help students improve their Presentations skills via drop ins, or you can catch me in one of my engaging workshops focusing on Wellbeing, Time Management and Great Presentations.
When I am not on the clock, you can find me in the park learning how to cartwheel, trying to find clothes for tall people or riding my bike to the point of exhaustion.
