About me & my work:

I am a financial services leader with expertise in derivatives and funds management. I was born in Australia but, after qualifying as a lawyer, have spent a large part of my career leading teams in organisations around the world, mostly in London and Asia.

I returned to Sydney three years ago where, following a stint as General Counsel for an ASX 100 company, I now work for Australia's largest annuities provider. I am making the most of what Australia has to offer while keeping an international outlook. In my spare time I enjoy choral singing and have performed at Carnegie Hall. I am on the Board of International Women's Forum, and a member of Sydney Symphony Orchestra Vanguard.

I am passionate about music, theatre, investing, women in leadership, and sparking joy.
