Greetings, I’m Jess your Course and Unit Advisor for the College of Arts and Education & College of Engineering and Science.
I provide a range of academic administration support and course-specific advice, primarily for the early childhood education, criminal justice, youth work and community development courses, but also all other programs across the colleges.
I am a proud graduate of Victoria University, achieving the Deans Scholar award for 2022 in the College of Business upon the completion of my Bachelor of Business. I have experience in student services within VU, as I started working casually within VUHQ while I was a student.
Surely you can see a pattern here. I have quite a commitment with VU.
Starting from when I was in my final year of high school and I attended the careers expo, to attending open day, becoming a student, an alumnus and finally a staff member. The values embodied by the culture of the university, by the people (I majored in Human Resource Management so I have a soft spot for people) and programs run are all aimed to best preparing everyone for the real world, even those who may be the first in their family to attend higher education.
I know that navigating studies and life can be very difficult sometimes, so having someone to seek guidance from in relation to your course is very important. That is why I am passionate about being a source of information to assist students with making their own decisions.
In my spare time, I love discovering new worlds through the pages of a fantastical book, and occasionally seeking those same adventures myself.
I wish you the best of luck in your studies here at Victoria University.
