"Carpe diem!"

Author and lawyer. Grew up with blue skies and the red rocks of Central Australia. Studied through School of the Air as a child, and wrote about it in AnAliceGirl (AU). Next came boarding school - BeyondAlice (AU) followed by law, wanderlust and Prague, just four years after the Berlin Wall fell - AlicetoPrague (AU). Now I've completed the full circle and returned to Central Australia and am loving it!

Independent passionate adventurer

My work life blend

Why are you a Business Chicks member?

I love to meet and engage with other creative businesswomen.

What's been the biggest pinch-me moment of your career?

A two book contract with Allen&Unwin - woohoo!

How do you deal with setbacks, failures and fear?

I have a big cry, then pull myself back onto the path of my goals and dreams - affirmations, journalling, hugs and hard work help

What's the best piece of advice you have ever received?

Never give up never give up never give up

Which women inspire you and why?

Women who go into politics and top corporate roles, because they have to dig deep to be heard, survive and contribute successfully

What's been the biggest challenge you have faced and how did it help shape who you are today?

Being Group General Counsel for a multi-million dollar company, managing high-stakes litigation, external legal teams and a challenging board, while building an in-house team of female lawyers. It taught me to dig deep and back myself

What are you really good at? (We know this one's hard, you guys! As women, we tend to talk about what everyone else is good at. But now it's your turn.)

Assessing complex legal / commercial issues, pulling together a good team to fill gaps, and developing strategic plans to deliver outcomes

What makes you happy?

Curled up, writing or reading, in the Central Australian sunshine

What's your definition of success, and how will you know when you've got there? (Go on, aim high!)

Selling my 3 books and securing a contract for book 4!
