Desirée is the Accommodation Services Lead at ICTE. Originally from South Africa, Desirée has lived and worked abroad in both Europe and Asia before immigrating to Australia 6 years ago.

Desirée previously managed a busy tuition centre in Brisbane and worked in the United Kingdom in a very similar role as her current ICTE position. 

Desirée’s education background coupled with her previous accommodation experience makes the ICTE Homestay office a natural fit.
