As Student Experience Coordinator, Georgia has the crucial role of coordinating our student experience by providing knowledgeable, empathetic, efficient, and intuitive management of enrolment systems.
With a graduate Diploma in Secondary Teaching from the University of Auckland and a Postgraduate Diploma in Museum Studies from Massey, Georgia is well-equipped to ensure the application, enrolment, finance and withdrawal processes are as smooth as possible.
Georgia’s excitement for this role stems from her alignment with the academyEX culture of embracing change and innovation, while also challenging traditional education norms. She’s most looking forward to playing a significant role in every student’s experience, helping to guide them on their academic journeys.
With everyday tasks becoming increasingly automated by technology in the workplace, Georgia predicts that ‘soft skills’ will grow in importance, especially within education. While new innovations risk taking the ‘humanness’ from our day-to-day, Georgia believes this will only make qualifications, hard skills, and interpersonal skills such as empathy, social awareness, compassion, and communication more invaluable.
Now for two fun facts: as an angsty teenager, Georgia was photographed for the book cover of In My Fathers Den by Maurice Gee. Even now, she receives the odd "is this you?!" message, and finds herself cringing everytime. She also has a superpower we can all only dream of, the ability to find a car park. Her top tip? To *visualise*.
