HEIA SA Patron
Wendy Teasdale-Smith was appointed Patron of HEIA SA during the World Home Economics Day celebration in 2012. Wendy is currently CEO of SATAC but began her career as a Home Economics teacher. Since that time her career has evolved spanning the primary, secondary and tertiary education systems; and involved working across the government, private and not-for-profit contexts. She is also well known for her extensive contribution to professional associations.
Wendy is looking forward to working closely with HEIA SA, including supporting the development of Home Economics teachers and raising the profile of Home Economics as a profession. Wendy has also sponsored a leadership award to encourage Home Economists to further their leadership abilities through training and education
