Chief Operating Officer
Working at the Foundation I have a front row seat to the huge impact our generous donors and supporters are making everyday. As a parent of two young children I feel privileged to do my small part in helping transform the healthcare of sick kids in WA.
Head of Corporate Services
In a nutshell after spending almost my entire career in the hustle and bustle of the finance sector I wanted to move to a not for profit where hopefully some of my skills would be of use. Knowing I might be contributing to improving the lives of others while at the same time improving my own life (by removing some of the stress and urgency in my day to day work) seemed to be a win win for me. I guess what I am saying I wanted to ease up but not stop and my priorities were more about getting a better life balance!
I am passionate about children’s health and working in the not-for-profit space – so the Foundation is the perfect marrying of these passions. As a mother of two, I am humbled every day to work in an environment that supports WA children and families to live happy, healthy lives.
After a lengthy career in the private sector, I recently made the leap into the not-for-profit space to focus on work that delivers deep community benefit. I’m proud to work in an environment that elevates the priority of children’s health and increases the quality and accessibility of healthcare through direct investment. My role at the Foundation is to guide strategic thought through to day-to-day operations, ensuring we continue to achieve our goals.
It is a privilege to work for the Foundation, where every day I get to see the positive impacts made for children and families in WA through our grants program. Witnessing the incredible generosity of our donors is so inspiring and makes it possible for us to help give sick kids and young people the opportunity to live their healthiest and happiest lives.
