Tell us about your breakthrough career moment
When I moved to the UK and decided to pursue a career that I knew nothing about.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever had?
There’s always a way.
Have you ever felt held back as a woman in business? How did you respond?
Not specifically, but sometimes when I go to events it is very male-dominated, which sometimes can feel uncomfortable.
How do you protect your mental health in moments of pressure?
I make lists, usually of what needs to be done, who I need help from and what is out of my control.
Do you have any hobbies to keep you busy in your spare time?
I read a lot and I love wandering around the streets.
I feel empowered when…
I am solving problems that will help people, usually in a design setting.
The woman who empowers me the most is….
The first thing I do in the morning is…
…make a coffee and go for a walk
The world will be a better place when…
Women and men are treated equally.
Where is your favourite place in the world?
On a beach. I love driving to Phillip Island and Mornington Peninsula in Victoria and going to the beaches there.
