Of note, she has held four separate Command appointments during her career the most recent of which was as Director General Supply Chain, in which role she was responsible for wholesale warehousing and distribution, maintenance and operational supply chain functions for the Australian Defence Force.

Her great passion lay in leadership and in mentoring the logistics officers and female leaders of the future. She also enjoys fishing, camping, baking, reading and shopping (for shoes of course!).
