What did you do before AWC?
After finishing my Masters I did some casual work as a research assistant with Melbourne Museum. In between that work I did a bit of travel, some short term volunteering and work at a wildlife park. I completed my internship with AWC in the North-West in 2017 and am stoked to be back now as a staff member.
