My career somewhat resembles a bowl of spaghetti, spanning sport and recreation, community development, public relations, governance technology, environmental science communication, youth entrepreneurship, future of work and fashion-tech.
With a love of innovation, I am constantly seeking creative answers to disrupt ‘how it’s always been done’ and as a 20+ year business owner, I appreciate that ‘it’s hard to see the painting when you’re in it’.
In my roles as a Consultant and Business Owner, I’ve had extensive experience across: business development, project management, technology solutions, stakeholder engagement, change management, leadership, education program design and communication resource development.
I have successfully secured grants in excess of $3M and raised capital from both private and angel investors. I am also the co-inventor of an Australian Innovation Patent.
As the previous Founder of a youth entrepreneur program, I co-designed a program to support young people to create a business, based on their passions, including: focused ideation, design thinking, customer interviews, product scoping, branding, financials, risk management, business development and pitching.
I am passionate about helping people to become the best they can be. Human connection and open communication is held in high importance for all the projects I work on, especially in a virtual world.
