Renee: Giving back to the community


Returning to study as a mature-age student and sole parent, Renee Page has forged a successful career in community services.

“I chose VU as it offered great pathways for learning. As a mature-age student, I wanted to ensure I was able to manage the study load as well as life balance. I needed a career path that was sustainable as a sole parent to ensure I was able to support my children.

I became employed on a casual basis through the organisation I completed my student placement with. Soon after, I became a case manager at a different organisation and was promoted to team leader. I'm currently the Recovery and Wellbeing team leader at McAuley House, supporting women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness."
