I was born in a little country town at the end of the great ocean road in Victoria call Warranambool. Growing up 3kms from the beach meant I could spend a lot of time there – this is where my appreciation for the beauty of such an amazing God given gift to man began.

I have been in the Stormwater industry for 14 years. Since starting with SPEL in 2011 I have had a large input in their R&D team developing and testing their products, designing and winning large oil water separation and spill control projects. I am currently the National Business development manager at SPEL Stormwater, working with large fuel providers and construction companies providing solutions to their stormwater storage and hydrocarbon spill control requirements.

As part of the Stormwater Queensland Committee, I aspire to support the great committee team and their many great initiatives like rainwater tanks, improve clarity around where councils are spending their offset money, encourage councils to implement a stormwater levy on their rates bill, and to achieve zero pollution by 2030 and SQIDEP (Stormwater Quality Improvement Devices Evaluation Protocol).

I am very passionate about these goals because I believe it will drive the responsibility of keeping our waterways back up stream and not left to just stormwater treatment devices. This will ensure my little girl will be able to swim at clean beaches when she grows up.

Outside of work I have a love for adventure, cooking and spending time with my family.
