Born and raised in Sydney, I attended a private girls’ school before joining the workforce at an early age. My professional journey pivoted when I joined a prestigious Sydney restaurant brand. There, under an inspiring leader, I found my entrepreneurial spirit and quickly climbed the ranks. By 20, I'd bought my first apartment and a new car. My career in hospitality spanned over a decade, participating in the launch of around ten restaurants across multiple brands. This phase was transformative, teaching me the importance of structure and efficiency—skills I didn't realise would serve me later in life. I relocated to Queensland to open a new restaurant however this never eventuated, prompting me to reassess my life's direction. I decided to pursue a business degree at Bond University, and also started training to become a telephone counsellor at Lifeline as I wanted to give back.
