Dr Stephanie Meek is a Lecturer in the School of Business and Law.


I’m from a small country village called Headley in Hampshire, England. I came to Australia when I was 26 and have lived and worked in Sydney, NSW, Melbourne, Victoria and Perth, WA. I studied at ECU as a mature student whilst bringing up three children as a single parent. My first achievement at ECU was to be included in the top 3% of students for 2012. In 2014 despite being absolutely petrified of public speaking I was one of the finalists in the ‘three minute thesis’ at ECU. My first career highlight was being awarded a PhD in 2016. My next career highlight was receiving the Vice-Chancellors Engagement in Learning and Teaching Award in 2017.
