About us

Our firm is led by two Principals.

Her consulting assignments have included sustainability strategy development evaluation and reporting; stakeholder engagement; policy research and development; planning for sustainable water and wastewater management; climate change risk assessment and reporting; and internal and external communications.

She previously held senior positions in policy agencies in the NSW and Commonwealth Governments that were responsible for environment, water, industry development and science policy issues.

Qualifications: MSc; Ph D; Master of Commerce; Grad. Dip. Public Policy.
