About me

I am an Engineering Director and work for Skedulo, a company that builds software for deskless / mobile workers; a group that makes up 80% of the total global workforce!

I have had a very diverse career journey! I attended the QLD Dance School of Excellence in high school, with the dream of becoming a professional ballerina! After school, I studied Dance and Science at university, and also completed a postgraduate degree in Information Technology.

In my professional career I have worked primarily in Research and Development roles, initially in medical research, and subsequently in software development. I discovered my passion for “people and processes” and moved into various leadership positions, where I can grow and develop my teams.
