I am a community strategist and disruptive innovation specialist passionate about the development and application of new business models, corporate social innovation, impact investment and fostering entrepreneurial capacity, particularly in women. I am currently Head of Venture Community at Reinventure Fund, an Australian venture capital firm focused on investing in disruptive financial services startups, with Westpac as its largest investor.

Prior to this role, I co-founded Collaborative Lab with author Rachel Botsman, working alongside leading thinkers, entrepreneurs and community champions to play an instrumental role in growing collaborative consumption into a global economy and movement over the last 5 years.

I am also cofounder of Common Room coworking space with my husband Josh, was a founding member and served as Curator (15-16) of the Sydney Global Shapers, a community of the World Economic Forum. I am also a registered yoga teacher, after completing my 200H certification in Costa Rica in May 2015.
