Staff Spotlight



Fun fact: I have a cat called “Miau” (meow). When we migrated to New Zealand, Miau just showed up at our door and decided to become our nightly door-to-door delivery cat, specializing in gourmet gifts (read: dead mice). To save the kids from emotional trauma (we were not adopting her, hell no!) and prevent them from naming her “fluffy”, we stuck with the name Miau (the sound cats do, in portuguese). Long story short, 12 years and an ocean-crossing later, she’s still our global feline companion. Vet visits are a comedy show as I explain Miau’s name

Fave cuisine: Brazilian (Feijoada), Spanish (Lentejas), and Italian (Pepperoni Pizza)

Nationality: Brazilian

Fave pastime/hobby: A good movie night with my family and popcorn!

Job role & how Chris can help you: As part of EE Mentor team, I am the marketing and communication mentor. I help students to understand new marketing concepts, theories and current trends



Fun fact: I was born/grew up in Melbourne. I have also always wanted to become an International Flight Attendant for Emirates in Dubai! Not very fun, but I am 5”2 or 154cm tall!

Fave cuisine: Japanese & Italian

Nationality: Australian

Fave pastime/hobby: I love a good Margarita, going to out for a fancy dinner, learning Spanish, swimming & hanging out with my friends

Job role & how Libby can help you: As part of the Student Services team at EE, I do a lot of processing & data entry, but I know and can fix just about everything to do with Canvas. I enjoy working at EE, if you know me, I am VERY talkative, I could really make friends with a brick wall at this point. I am always here to help with any general enquiries about pretty much anything!

City Otter

A brand by Diploma of Leadership and Management student; Gabriele Vaineikyte

City Otter is a brand focusing on pedestrians’ safety by offering handmade reflective scrunchies.

My goal is not only to create fashionable accessories and also to educate people about the importance of wearing reflectors.
Ever since I was a child, I recognized the importance of wearing reflectors. However, it always seemed like there weren’t enough options available. I tried my best to wear reflectors but over time they vanished from my outfit. When walking in the unlit street or crossing the road after the sun was down I kept questioning myself – why did it happen and what can I do to change it.
The answer was quite obvious – there is no doubt that reflectors are extremely important, but a rare person is able to choose a reflector that he likes and suits him from the available offers these days. While style should not be the sole factor in deciding between safety and aesthetics, we have to acknowledge that it does influence our choices, even subconsciously. To protect people and help not only pedestrians but also drivers, I created City Otter. City Otter offers handmade reflective scrunchies designed not only to be worn as a hair accessory but also to be worn as a wristband.
