Saving lives of drivers by teaching them the skills to drive to survive.

Educating drivers to comprehend the dangers of risk taking and the consequences of their actions.



Driving is a quality I have developed over 38yrs as a police officer in completing different driving courses and driving all types of vehicles from restricted speeds to high speed pursuits.

I have a strong knowledge of the Road Laws gained from the Victoria Police Traffic Operations Group Traffic Education Course and the ongoing enforcement of traffic offences.

Communications is a strength I have due to the many and varied contacts I have on a daily basis in the preparation and security involving the Chief Commissioner of Police. I also have ongoing refresher courses in driving and conflict resolution.

Adaptability, I have enjoyed doing the Cert IV course and learning new approaches to teaching/coaching and believe these approaches will make a difference and safer outcome for students going forward.

Team orientation, I enjoy working in teams to help consistently achieve a high result for the organisation.

Professional Development has been a core part of my career and I believe it is an important part of any industry or business.

Confidentiality is a quality I have that has seen me serve five Chief Commissioner's over a period of 26yrs and been privy to many highly confidential conversations and material. I also hold a National Top Secret Level Clearance.
