Co-Founder & COO, Tractor Ventures

I am passionate about helping businesses start and grow. Currently I am a Co-Founder and COO at Tractor Ventures.
Tractor Ventures provides a flexible, revenue based financing alternative for founders who want to lead profitable technology companies. We believe that not all ambitious founders need venture capital.

Prior to this I was at SBE Australia where I led the team in accelerating some of Australia’s most innovative female leaders.

I set up the Innovation Bay community in Melbourne, am an advisor to multiple startups and mentor at Startmate.

Previously, I cofounder two-sided marketplace, Occasional Butler, which was acquired by rival Airtasker and depo8 coworking.

At the Wade Institute I was a mentor, lecturer and Director of Startups.

Prior to this I spent nine years as the General Manager for leading Australian fashion designer Leona Edmiston, driving strong business growth from 2 stores to 25 stores and growing the team from 3 to 50+.

As well as an Account Manager for Ericsson Australia and also for NCR Corporation in both Sydney and London.

I have a Bachelor of Commerce (Marketing) from the University of Western Sydney and a Masters in Financial Management from the Macquarie Graduate School of Management.
