Cheryl Robertson

Cheryl Robertson realised the need for a website to highlight the biodiversity of the James Cook University campuses. From her ideas and enthusiasm this website grew. Cheryl graduated from JCU with a BA and subsequently worked for Government departments in Western Australia and Queensland, and for a Federal Government Minister, before returning to Townsville and JCU to provide support services for international students. In 2005 she set up the office of JCU Students Abroad and is now responsible for outward mobility, sending domestic students around the world for a semester abroad. Photography and nature study are her leisure interests and she loves the biodiversity to be found on the JCU campuses. She has now retired so as to concentrate on photography, particularly of birds.
