About me & my work:

When doors of opportunity were opened to me I walked through them every time. Using my wits and intuition and skills picked up along the way my unplannable career has landed me in roles where I could impact outcomes and create new horizons. Whether as head of the Chairman and CEO's office at BP, taking a telco public as CFO of Optus, bringing commercial acumen and broadening access to a nation's iconic precinct as CEO of Sydney Opera House, through hands on Boards of astonishing performing arts companies and inInternational Development and Humanitarian Aid as CEO of UNICEF Australia. Now working with the extraordinary chef Jock Zonfrillo to establish the Orana Foundation to create indigenous enterprises, recognise the sophisticated land management and food culture of the first Australians, and reconnect Australians with native wild foods. ...the journey has been thrilling and continues to be so. I am driven by an insatiable curiosity for new possibilities.
