Julie realised in her third year of a Physiotherapy course that a little more attention to career development could have helped her make a more appropriate choice when she left school. She surprised herself (and many others!) by becoming a Maths and Chemistry teacher, and after teaching in a variety of metropolitan, regional and residential schools in Victoria and Tasmania, happenstance led her to a role as a Career Practitioner, along with developing VET and VCAL offerings to meet the increasingly diverse needs of her students. Jumping into the My Career Insights program after returning from a trek to Everest Base Camp presented some new mountains to climb, and now joining the CEAV Institute as a Trainer/Assessor, she is looking forward to another opportunity to work with others on their ‘lifelong learning’ journey.
