MEET OUR TEAM
Megan has worked in the jewellery industry for over 20 years and has been with the JAA for over a decade, joining us in 2007.
Her love of jewellery started when she was young, and she completed a range of extra-extracurricular courses in jewellery manufacturing during her secondary education. She was recognised for her jewellery talents as a high school student, with her major work selected for DesignTECH. Megan then went on to complete an Advanced Diploma in Jewellery and Object Design and a Certificate III in Jewellery Manufacture through TAFE NSW. Megan continues to privately manufacture jewellery as a hobby and has received many awards for her designs. She also holds a Bachelor in Criminology and Criminal Justice from Griffith University, graduating with honours.
Megan’s long service to the JAA means she holds a deep understanding of the association and the needs of members and the wider industry, particularly as she has held a variety of roles during her time with the JAA. She is knowledgeable in several areas, not just jewellery, and works hard to assist members and the wider industry in any enquiries they may have. Megan is experienced in membership, website and database management, social media, marketing and communications, the Australian Consumer Law, as well as accounts, government reporting and association management including Board and Committee duties. She also manages the highly prestigious biennial JAA Australasian Jewellery Awards program.
