After completing a Masters of Sustainability in 2019 at Sydney University, I began working in corporate sustainability at the Sydney Opera House before transitioning into the finance sector where I took up a position with Refinitiv, an ESG data provider, in a market development and ESG engagement function. Currently, I work in community engagement/business development for a social impact start up in the disability sector.
I’m interested in the intersection of social and environmental issues, particularly those that work towards a just transition to a future where people, nature and the economy flourish.
A firm believer in life long learning, I aim to use my experience in the financial services sector, along with my ongoing studies, to contribute to society. I have a great interest in ESG principles, responsible investing (particularly impact investing) and social issues – especially anything addressing social or financial inequality. I’m also a keen scholar of most sports, and still manage to partake (slowly) in touch footy, swimming, cycling, tennis and yoga.
