I have worked in a range of private, public and third sector organisations, ranging from tax, workplace relations and defence to Medicare, a NASA space tracking station, and as CEO of national peak bodies in the areas of homelessness and disability. I also worked for some years as a management consultant with Deloitte Consulting.

In the past I have volunteered with the Red Cross as a Telecross volunteer, and am currently a member of the Community Fire Unit Fadden, and volunteer at Ronald McDonald House Canberra.
My interests include Australian Rules football (as a long-suffering St Kilda supporter), playing squash, women’s basketball, cooking, and reading. I am a keen fruit and vegetable gardener, and have eight chickens and a dalmatian, Kenny the Wonder Dog.
