Interior designer and educator, Leighann Ness Wilson has been appointed to HEAL’s PICU Partnership Project. Leighann currently teaches at ACU, inspiring future primary educators through design thinking and creativity. She also works independently as an education consultant, developing and providing workshops and learning experiences to students and teachers. Currently Leighann is researching the impact of design thinking as a pedagogical approach on pre-service primary teachers for her Masters of Philosophy at QUT. Leighann’s own, now thriving, 9 year old daughter was born prematurely, weighing only 1070g, so in addition to her design expertise, Leighann brings the lived experience of having a child in intensive care to the PICU Partnership Project.
