Dr Pauleen Bennett

Unlike some students who see study as a chore, Pauleen totally loved learning - just about anything. She tried out computer science, philosophy, sociology, interdisciplinary studies, biology, zoology and, of course, heaps of psychology. Ten years later she had two Bachelor's degrees, a Master's degree, a PhD and an academic position in the psychology department at Monash University.

In early 2011 she took up a new position as Director of Regional Operations for the School of Psychological Science at La Trobe University.
