My experience

With more than 20 years’ experience across corporate, consultancy, not-for-profit and tertiary organisations, I have spent the past decade focused on philanthropy and intergenerational wealth. I have been the founding Executive Officer of a private philanthropic foundation and for many years ran a peer network and education program for families with significant wealth. I am a non-Executive Director of Private Wealth Network and have a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations from RMIT, a Bachelor of Letters (Hons) from Monash University and a Masters in Philanthropy and Social Investment from Swinburne University’s Centre for Social Impact.
