Jodie is the Associate Vice-Chancellor, Cairns and Far North Region for CQUniversity. Jodie commenced with CQUniversity in 2014 to establish a campus in Cairns. With a 20+ year career in higher education, Jodie has a strong understanding of the issues facing the sector, particularly from a regional university perspective.
Her interests, however, extend beyond higher education to include regional development more broadly. She is an engagement specialist and a strategic thinker who loves working with ‘out of the norm’ ideas.
Jodie is an active member of her community, serving on the Management Committees of Study Cairns (as Vice President) and Cairns Chamber of Commerce (as Vice President). Jodie is also a Director on the Board of Advance Cairns and the Company Secretary of Engagement Australia.
