Over the course of my adult life, HIV has been ever present.  As a volunteer, as a carer, as a supporter and as a person living with HIV, I have sought and found ways to contribute what I can.

When diagnosed, I re-dedicated myself to engagement.  At first, because I needed the strength I knew I’d find in this community, but ultimately because it’s what I’ve always done.

My career as a Program and Project Director in software development and financial services has afforded me a strong set of leadership, tactical and strategic planning, risk management, process development and governance skills.   Fostering collaboration and good communication is at the heart of how I work.   The nature of my career demands that I constantly examine the status quo for opportunities to do better.

My personal philosophy of life is ‘live now, there’s no time to waste’.   Travel has been a life-long passion, and I’ve had the privilege to live long term in three countries.
