A key part of the Knowledge Services team, Elizabeth is responsible for working in partnership with the Faculty of Education to develop, bid for and support the delivery of large scale education programmes in New Zealand, the Pacific and South East Asia—and to develop, market and deliver professional development services to the New Zealand education sector.

She is also involved in the implementation of the KiVa bullying prevention programme in New Zealand schools.

A former teacher, Elizabeth has extensive experience developing resources and professional learning programmes for all levels of the education sector. She worked as a project and account manager at Learning Media where she focused on the development of literacy materials and training for the international market.

Elizabeth lives in Eastbourne, where she loves to make the most of local bush walks and swims in the sea—when the weather permits.
