Fitness, Nutrition and Personal Trainer: Meet Miranda!
Hi guys, I’m one of your mentors and tutors here at Online Courses Australia.
I have been a leading personal trainer, nutritionist, coach and fitness educator for many years. I am also a qualified clinical nutritionist. I went back to university to follow my passion. I studied for my Bachelor of Nutrition at The University of the Sunshine Coast and a Bachelor of Food Science at Deakin University.
I have an extensive background working with individuals, teams and organisations in the areas of physical transformation, nutritional coaching, cognitive performance, health assessment and self-management. In all honestly, I just love helping people with health and fitness.
I founded and owned my own personal training and coaching business and have over ten years of experience within the fitness industry. I was even lucky enough to become an experienced The Australian Institute of Fitness lecturer. Share my passion with hundreds of students, teaching them how to optimise their health, fitness and physique.
My career has taken me to many places. I even worked at two prestigious 5-star health retreats in Thailand, where I continued to share my love and passion for personal transformation. I am currently the national nutritionist for 12 Round/UBX Fitness and a nutritional course writer for Online Courses Australia and the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers. My philosophy is to share
my love and passion for health and fitness. Creating long-term, sustainable, and healthy changes in the lives of those I touch. My aim is to show individuals how to create the optimum life through science-backed education, coaching, encouragement, support and planning.

Animal Health & Veterinarian Care: Meet Hollie
I'm Hollie, and I'm absolutely thrilled to be your mentor on this incredible journey into the world of animal care.
For more than 16 wonderful years, I've had the privilege of being a dedicated veterinary nurse. It's not just a job; it's my passion, my purpose, and my heart's delight. Every morning, I wake up with an uncontainable enthusiasm because I get to do what I love most - caring for animals.
Animals are my world; from our four-legged furry friends to feathery companions, I have had the honour of tending to them all. I've witnessed their unique quirks, boundless love, and moments of vulnerability.
I understand that working with animals can be both challenging and rewarding. Whether it's comforting a scared pup, administering medication to a stubborn cat, or assisting during surgeries, I've been there. I understand the incredible responsibility of ensuring every animal receives the best care possible.
Throughout my career, I have taken people under my wing, mentoring work experience students who have become a cherished part of our practice. Watching these students learn and grow has been a source of immense joy, and I can't wait to extend this mentorship to you.
As your mentor, I bring to the table a treasure trove of knowledge and experience. My enthusiasm is infectious, and I'm here to inspire you to push beyond your limits. Whether you're learning about animal behaviour, mastering veterinary techniques, or exploring the pathways to becoming a veterinary nurse, I am delighted to assist you.
With my guidance, you'll learn the ropes of animal care and develop the unwavering commitment and compassion that this field demands. We can build an understanding of the secrets of animal care and cultivate the skills you need to thrive in the world of Veterinary nursing. Feel free to reach out with your questions and curiosities on the amazing world of animal care.
Salon Owner, certified lash artist, and Educator: Meet Brianna!
Hi students; I am the creator and mentor of your online lash extension course.
I am located in Melbourne, but virtually I am everywhere. I kid you not when I say that you can gain financial freedom when you become a certified lash artist, and I developed this course to give you just that. I have searched for who I am and where I belong from a young age. I hungered for the empowerment of being an independent businesswoman. I hustled daily to create a course that enables like-minded women to become independent, confident, sexy and empowered. I strive to have each and every one of my students be their true authentic selves and build their lash empires with integrity and poise. In your course, you will learn how to create the most beautiful set of lash extensions, build your own business and edit your photos to give you an aesthetically pleasing social media feed. It’s not just all sunshine and rainbows; you will have struggles and want to throw your tools away and walk away about 100 times. You must be patient, though. You must understand that this is not a skill that is learned overnight. The good things in life do not come easy. You will get there. You will succeed. I am eagerly looking forward to virtually meeting you and training you. You can pick my brain as much as you need until you feel brave enough to go forward without me. We are in this together.
LET’S DO THIS, TEAM!
Animal Health & Veterinarian: INDUSTRY MENTOR (friend of OCA)
Hello, I’m Dr Ros, and I am very excited to support you in your learning journey with online courses in Australia.
My own journey as a Veterinarian began when I completed my bachelor's in Vet Science at the University of Melbourne in 2008. Since then, I have worked with many talented and dedicated animal health professionals in Australia and worldwide. Further to my passion for medicine, I also love working with people, which has led to further roles in vet recruitment, training and development, and operations management for an extensive network of vet practices in Australia and New Zealand.
I hope I can assist you with my extensive knowledge!
Meet Sarah! INDUSTRY MENTOR (friend of OCA)
Hi, I’m one of your mentors and tutors here at Online Courses Australia.
I live in Sydney but hail from the UK, where I initially worked in psychological services and then consulting. I started my teaching career while studying for my PhD in 2015. I enjoyed the mix of research, writing and tutoring and started teaching small classes face-to-face before embarking on online tutoring for the lifelong learning sector. I am undoubtedly passionate about education and career development, and I love mentoring students to help them through their courses and their next career steps. I do career counselling sessions part-time and bring my knowledge into my tutoring role. I love to teach, and I'm passionate about seeing you excel in your courses, and I know what it's like to embark on a new course. I’ve done so many myself.
