I believe passionately in the ability of women to change direction and recreate their lives to make them more stimulating and satisfying. I also care about the communities we live in and the need to provide financial support, education and encouragement to unlock talent. Put that together and BPW for me offers the opportunity to help women make the most of their potential. I’ve done heaps of things: geologist, stay at home mother of three for seventeen years, potter, IT technical writer, IT project manager, orchardist and now community worker.
Major professional achievements were managing the installation of an inter-company fraud system for the NZ Insurance Council and the building of the Rewards system for the Automobile Association and its installation in all the partner sites.
