Business and social change innovator

    My father ran one of Sydney’s first nuclear medicine practices and, while at school, I earned extra money picking up patients who needed a scan. Once a female patient asked about my family and on hearing I was one of three daughters, she said ‘Your poor father – no one to carry on the family name!’

    That was the moment I realised the achievements of women were often considered less valuable than those of men. I promised myself I would do what I could to challenge those unconscious biases.  

    At university, I studied computer science and law, and I still refer back to many of the lessons I learned about how to challenge the ways we work.  

    Today, I’m a business and social change innovator. I work with organisations in the fields of gender equality and diversity, making it easier for girls to explore their own passions, whether that’s computer science, arts or law.
