Kimberley leads Ivanhoe Grammar School’s People Strategy and operations team. She is passionate about creating organisational cultures that support people to do their best work. Prior to starting at Ivanhoe in 2017, Kimberley held a senior HR role at the University of Melbourne working alongside great thinkers driving transformational change and implementing the new people strategy University-wide. Her strong orientation for excellence with an authentic, effective and highly principled approach, no doubt stems from her background as a legal practitioner at Freehills. Kimberley firmly believes a school is built on the strength of its people; understanding the significant impact a great teacher has on the young people they teach; and the importance of having great people across the School as role models for our students.
