Board Director, Women’s Health and Wellbeing Barwon South West, Women’s Health and Wellbeing Barwon South West Incorporated

Master of Business Administration – Kaplan Business School (2019)

“As a mum of young children, along with living rurally and after spending 4 years as a PhD student, the dream of being able to afford to do an MBA was at least a decade away for me. Following finishing my PhD, I was recruited to the Board of a not-for-profit rural organisation, and it became clear that there was a need for rural women, like me, to upskill with MBA knowledge. Receiving the ASF scholarship has made this dream come true and I know I will be able to use the skills for the rest of my working life, to continue contributing to not-for-profit Boards as an enthusiastic, passionate rural woman and hopefully inspire others to take on leadership roles too.”
