With 30 years in the public sector, Ann has enjoyed a diverse psychology career. She has worked as a psychologist in public schools and more specialised education settings in metropolitan Perth and the far north of Western Australia, and in policy and strategy roles. Ann’s current role with the Office of the Chief Psychologist sees her working alongside universities and the profession to grow the number of psychologists in public schools and support their transition to the education context. She’s passionate about the unique role of school psychologists, who work not only with students with complex support needs, but collaboratively with school staff and leaders as coaches and consultants. The Department of Education’s workforce of almost 600 school psychologists extend the skills and capacity of the education system to better support educational outcomes for all students. Ann holds qualifications in psychology and teaching and is a graduate of QUT’s Public Sector Management Program.
