I manage a portfolio career, holding a number of positions which are connected through a common focus on the opportunities which innovation, technology and diversification offer. My experience is a result of over 30 years across the private, not for profit and government sectors.

I commenced my career as a corporate lawyer in Sydney and later practised commercial law in Western Australia. Evolving from legal advisor to commercial director, I have held senior positions within industry, provided leadership and governance as a company director across a range of businesses, and facilitated innovation through a number of State and Federal Government initiatives.

I am a committed and active protagonist within the Australian innovation eco-system, with a passion for entrepreneurship, disruption and connecting Australian smarts to the world.

I share my expertise as an advisor, mentor and facilitator, as well as a keynote speaker on topics relating to future skills, innovation, diversity and STEM. As the mother of three daughters, I remain an ever-enthusiastic champion for diversity, equality and enabling female entrepreneurship. In October 2018 I was honoured to be awarded the 2018 Excellence in Gender Equity Promotion Award by the United Nations Association of Australia (WA Division) Inc.
