I have worked as a lawyer and business development professional for over 25 years, I'm passionate about understanding and delivering value to clients, building diverse and high performing teams and serving the community.
I have worked for MinterEllison for 20 years, as an employment lawyer and since 2005 in business development where she has held a number of leadership positions across the firm's government, real estate and education practices. With a reputation for a strong influencing skills, stakeholder management and building high performing teams to work through challenging issues and to collectively own the solutions.
One of the joys at MinterEllison is being the fairy godmother, a founding member and champion of the Diversity and Inclusions committee focused on the LGBTI+ community PRIME.
I'm also on the Board of the Bread and Butter Project Australia's first social enterprise bakery, whereby 100% of profits are reinvested into baker training (importantly a TAFE accreditation in baking and ESL training) and employment pathways for refugees and asylum seekers.
For 9 years I was on the Board of an independent Catholic boarding school St Vincent's College with a very proud tradition of educating strong women, including indigenous students and isolated rural students.
