She worked in corporate communication for some of Australia's largest companies for nearly eight years before realising it wasn't where she wanted to spend the rest of her life.

She values the opportunity to help students develop the skills to cut through the fake news and misinformation that is now so prevalent. She also enjoys creating opportunities for the Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections to be used in new and innovative ways – to ensure it’s not just a repository of lovely things but a collection that’s alive and active and contributes to the unique Sydney research and education experience.
