She excels at strategy and its implementation and is a natural builder of teams and brands.

In her current role as Head of Junior Cricket at Cricket Australia, she is working with Australian Cricket staff and volunteers to transform junior cricket through innovative solutions based on community needs. The objective is to ensure cricket is fun, relevant and engaging for Australian boys and girls. And she continues to be an advocate for females in sport at all levels.
