Charmaine graduated from Murdoch University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, where she studied developmental psychology. During the course of her study, she developed an interest in working with children and discovered her calling for helping and nurturing others, further reaffirming her aspiration of being a therapist.
Before her work at Singapore Brain Development Centre, Charmaine dedicated two and a half years as an English Tutor, guiding Secondary School students and inspiring them to reach their academic goals. Furthermore, she served as a Psychology Research Assistant at the National Institute of Education in Singapore for over a year, playing a crucial role in administering a diverse range of academic and psychological tests for young children.
Charmaine’s commitment to making a positive impact extends beyond her professional endeavours. She led and organised a school-building project for refugee children in Johor, Malaysia, and contributed as part of a tutoring team for children from underprivileged families. These experiences have equipped her with invaluable skills to interact with and cater to the individual needs of children. Charmaine deeply values her interactions with students and strives to empower them to reach their full potential.
Outside of work, Charmaine enjoys singing and playing the piano. An avid reader of all sorts of books, she can often be found browsing in bookstores.
