Jerabel Warren

Regional Manager, International Relationships
TAFE International Western Australia (TIWA)

Originally from Malaysia, I first came to Perth as an international student. Along the way, I've had the incredible opportunity to work with esteem institutions such as Stanley College, Phoenix Academy, and most recently, TAFE International Western Australia. While my professional background primarily lies in graphic design, publication, and marketing, my passion for international student recruitment has become a driving force in my career. With over two decades of experience in the International Education sector, I've been fortunate to engage with individuals across various organisational levels and diverse cultural backgrounds. Beyond the boardrooms and classrooms, I've learned most from motherhood. Balancing the demands of nurturing my children with the exhilarating challenges of my career has not only enriched my personal journey but has also honed my professional edge, propelling me to new heights of growth within my field.
