Since winning the Philip Leong Youth Programme Bursary in 2005, I progressively completed a Masters of Business Administration at James Cook University part-time whilst starting my own project
management consultancy in 2006.
A move to Brisbane for my partners work saw me project managing all business-related activities required to successfully complete the Queensland government’s $3 billion sale of ENERGEX’s gas and electricity businesses to Origin and AGL.
Following this I moved across to the Department of Community Safety where I managed a number of business improvement initiatives including the $10 million development and implementation of two
business critical systems required to manage functions such as fire investigations, building fire safety audits and approvals and compliance and prosecutions.
I am currently project managing the development of a new system at the Queensland Studies Authority which will allow for the real-time capture of student enrollments and results from all Queensland secondary schools and the generation of Certificates of Education, Senior Statements of Results, and Tertiary Entrance Statements.
I am hoping to balance the management of this somewhat smaller project with motherhood following
the birth of my first child very shortly!
With my partner contemplating a change of career in the next couple of years we are hoping a return
to Townsville, where my family live, may be possible.
