Personal Bio/ Summary

With a decade of experience in the not-for-profit industry, spanning states and countries, I’ve developed a unique view of the current giving climate. My personal passion has always been the same – illustrating for today’s donors and philanthropists the precise impact of their generosity and empowering them to pursue the change they’ve personally imagined.I currently lead the traditional fundraising arm at Cure Cancer – one of the oldest charities in Australia. We don’t pick and choose the cancers we fight. Cancer doesn’t discriminate and neither do we.
