Stacy as a Career Counsellor and Coach

IMG_7571.JPG

Stacy is a professionally registered career development practitioner and teacher, based in Toowoomba, Queensland. From 2006 to 2021, she has worked exclusively as a career educator and career counsellor at Toowoomba Grammar School in the role of Head of Careers and VET. She has also assisted students from many local schools prepare for UCAT and entry into medical programs; and she has worked privately with young adults seeking career guidance. Stacy has loved every minute of this work. In 2021, she made the very difficult decision to step out of the school environment after nearly 40 years and have a go at becoming a modern-day gigster. (See Sue Ellson’s book, Gigsters – Any Age or Ability Employees, Experts and Entrepreneurs.)
Stacy has developed her career counselling skills and career knowledge over many years of dedicated practice. While working with high school students and young adults is certainly her area of expertise, she is fascinated with career development and transition throughout the entire lifespan and welcomes clients from all ages. As an active member of several career networks, and with strong relationships within the tertiary education sector and business community, she maintains currency in a complex and rapidly changing world.
