Jigna Desai, Skyline Program Manager

Jigna is a highly motivated educator and problem-solver with diverse experience across the private, public and non-profit sectors. She is committed to increasing equity in and through education.

Most recently, Jigna completed Teach for Australia’s rigorous Leadership Development Program. Whilst teaching VCE English and Business Management, her teaching philosophy was underpinned by a focus on student wellbeing, growth mindset and data-informed teaching strategies.

Previously, Jigna worked as a marketing and strategy professional with experience across three countries for a wide range of organisations and clients. Her career change from business to education was driven by a love of learning, the pursuit of educational equity and a passion for improving the student experience.

Jigna has experienced the transformative power of education first-hand as the daughter of immigrants and is thrilled to work alongside the incredibly inspirational and resilient Skyline students to help them realise their full potential in the Skyline Program and beyond.
