I have lived in the Illawarra for my whole life and have a strong family history of over 100 years in Wollongong. I went to the University of Wollongong and received a Bachelor of Commerce with International Business and Finance in 2002. I secured a graduate position with ANZ in business banking in Wollongong in 2003 and have worked in various Business Banking roles within ANZ during that time. In 2015 I was appointed the Regional Executive of NSW South Coast Business Banking for ANZ and lead a team of 15 people specialising on helping people and communities thrive. I enjoying volunteering for the cruise ships that come to Wollongong as a tour guide as well as assisting the cancer council with any fundraising initiatives. In brief times outside of that I spend with my two young boys 5 and 4 years of age and my husband renovating our home.
