Hi, I’m Debbie and I am studying MIS(LIP) full-time. I’m in my second semester and thoroughly enjoyed the first semester, achieving things I never thought possible such as writing a webpage and semi-mastering SQL. I have a background in nursing, but am ready for a career change after many years. I decided on a career in libraries as I have always felt happy in when visiting them. I also would like to continue helping people and empowering them to be the best they can. I have an interest in literacy after working in correctional centres and being astounded by the high levels of poor literacy, particularly with the indigenous clients. Consequently, I would like to work in public libraries ideally but that may change. Personally I am married with 2 dogs and have lived in Brisbane for 15 years after emigrating from Manchester (home of great football and music). I love going to see live music, walking and reading and I run a social group for adults.
