Originally from Australia, I have spent the last 14 years travelling the world; in total, I’ve visited 54 countries and made Canada, the 12th country that I’ve lived in.
My educational background is largely in business but my interests and work experience have been diverse. I love to learn new things and be constantly challenged! I have a Bachelor of Business Administration focused on international business from Schiller International University (Madrid and London campuses) and a Masters of Business in Applied Finance from Queensland University of Technology (Australia), where I studied my last semester through scholarship in Vienna, Austria at the Vienna University of Economics and Business.
Over my career, I have worked extensively with the largest financial services and banking institutions in Australia and Scotland, specializing in project management and business analysis, mostly in computer program projects. I have also worked in Prince 2 and Lean methodologies.
After many years of travel, I have chosen to settle in the Yukon. I love to give back to the communities where I live, and so I work as a volunteer Yukon Ski Patrol, was on the board of the Yukon Avalanche Association, whereby I successfully managed installing a weather station project in Haines Pass, BC, I’m also a rookie volunteer firefighter at Golden Horn Volunteer Fire Department, and a volunteer with Yukon Search and Rescue. I also contribute regularly as a freelance writer for the local, free paper, ‘What’s Up Yukon’.
I’m thrilled to join the AICBR team as Project Coordinator and am really excited to collaborate and work with our various partners on upcoming projects related to Indigenous education, youth programming and climate change.
