About Me

“I'm a wife whose husband owns his own endurance coaching and nutrition business, I'm a Mum of Hunter who is 12. All of us are active participants in sports and know this helps towards our personal wellbeing. I have held senior roles across several sectors and fast paced organisations. I'm known for focusing on outcomes and ensuring execution is on time and budget to what has been planned. I have in my roles interacted with boards, I have been a member of Institute of Directors and completed their governance and finance courses. I chaired our local school board for three years and was an active member for three years prior. Most recently I have completed my post graduate degree through University of Virginia Darden School of Business. ”
