It started with a passion for all things design – interiors, gardens, art, architecture and nature. Thanks to my family, I grew up amongst textures, tastes and support that nurtured my creativity that kickstarted this fantastic career path.

AccessADAPT was created as a platform to promote, assist and integrate the principles of adaptable housing and accessibility equality in the built environment, responding to the needs of the disability and aged care community in the ACT. It targeted ACT Government and private sector property and asset managers, the construction industry, health care providers and legislators.
Through a front-line service that included a telephone hotline, website, training and committee participation, the principles of equitable and adaptable design were pushed into every core policy and acceptance amongst the local industry. The program ran for 4 years.
I was one of the founding directors of Custom Flatpack Pty Ltd and became the principal interior design consultant, specialising in the concept, design and detailing of bespoke kitchen and commercial joinery; however, leaving the firm in 2015 to pursue other design adventures, the business continues to this day.

The adage'love what you do and you'll never work a day in your life' definitely rings true.
Keeping current is one of my biggest drivers, either in design trends, construction materials, sustainable design principles and building codes.
After 20 years of professional practice, I felt it was time to upskill to better support my clients and capabilities. And to keep up with all the cool kids
I can't sit still long enough, so why not re-design my brand, right?
