Northern Beaches / Pittwater, NSW
My enduring enthusiasm for pursuing every opportunity that life presents commenced after emigrating to Australia as a teenager, then becoming one of Caltex’s first female franchisees. Subsequently Caltex recruited me to their Sydney head office appointing me as their National Category Manager, and permitting me to complete my Master of Business Administration (MBA) part-time.
I raised two sons whilst working full-time before reaching a new career decision to re-enter the franchising world. I went on to lead my two continually successful ‘Hire A Hubby’ businesses, winning annual Franchise and Enterprise of the Year awards over five times before being inspired to confidently incorporate my own first start-up.
“Office Shed” an integrated business administration and bookkeeping company provided outsourced local back-office support services to franchisees and other small entrepreneurial businesses. After 3+ successful years building and supporting a substantial regional customer base, I chose to sell that business to pursue alternate ways I could assist other business owners to succeed. A decision that has now become my most rewarding move yet: The Alternative Board
