Nadia joined the AMSI team as a Schools Outreach Officer in 2017. She began her career as a Quality Control and Research specialist after completing her Bachelor of Science with a major in Geophysics in 1997. Her passion for education drove her to complete a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education, enabling her to work as a teacher of mathematics for 13 years. In this time, Nadia has held the positions of Numeracy Coordinator and Learning Culture leader with a particular focus on PAT-M and NAPLAN statistics. She has also spent time writing for Oxford University Press, developing assessment tasks for their range of mathematics textbooks.
Nadia’s passion for education has been driven by her own personal “struggle” in Mathematics during her time at school. Overcoming these difficulties and finding a true love for maths, she has made it her mission to assist students in developing effective strategies in order to combat their own challenges and find beauty, appreciation and success in mathematics.
Nadia has a special interest in antiques and enjoys both painting and restoring furniture in her spare time. As well as this, she loves to keep fit, has three teenage children and admits to being a huge Lord of the Rings and fantasy fiction geek.
