The Basics

Originally from Wellington, New Zealand, I've taken a path through graphic design and into the not-for-profit sector, picking up communications, marketing and volunteer management experience along the way.

I'm inspired by people and organisations who do well by doing good, and I use my skills in service of that – in whatever combination they're needed.

I've designed thingsrun fundraising appeals; organised events; managed volunteers; set up and improved systems; generated positive media coverage; created content for and managed websites, email newsletters and social media; and done the odd bit of public speaking.

If I believe in what I'm doing, you can bet I'll get stuck in and give it everything I've got. 


Experience

After graduating in 2004, I spent eight years in graphic design, working for various creative agencies, and with a range of clients including those in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. I’ve worked in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom in permanent and freelance positions.

From 2010 through to 2012, I freelanced extensively with the London Transport Museum, where I worked on graphic design for exhibitions.

I returned to New Zealand in 2012, and moved into the not-for-profit sector when I joined Kaibosh Food Rescue.
I've held various roles within the organisation, covering volunteer management, marketing and communications.

In 2016, I was invited to be a foundation member of Super Diverse Women, an organisation aiming to recognise, empower and inspire diverse women leaders throughout Australasia.
