I have a STEMM background starting my career in medicinal chemistry. Since leaving the lab bench I have embarked on an amazing journey of careers including as a lecturer, commercialisation manager, research program director and am currently the director of a Startup Accelerator.
I am passionate about science, gender equality, disability support and the value of research. I spend my days connecting researchers and building projects with community, government and industry. I bring diverse groups of people together to facilitate transformative and impactful projects.
Living in Wollongong, I enjoy connecting with nature and recharge by bushwalking and spending time on the beach.
With four kids, I juggle the work-life tightrope and love relaxing with family and friends.
