Samantha Hilbig
Griffith University

I have been an active member of ISANA for many years and have been current Queensland President for 3 years. I started my experience with International students as a Student Adviser with Charles Darwin University over 16 years ago and have been employed by Griffith University for 12 years, 10 years as Homestay Coordinator. In my role I have experienced many highs and lows as this role  is very diverse and involves interacting with students, families, agents and both internal and external community sectors.

ISANA has provided me with the opportunity to interact with many people from different sectors, develop my skills and also create lifelong friendships.
