As UNICEF UK’s Television Manager, she worked on film and TV projects with high-profile UNICEF Ambassadors including Ewan McGregor, Tom Hiddleston and David Beckham as well as acclaimed Channel 4 documentary Children Of War and the BBC’s BAFTA award-winning The Boy On The Bicycle, both highlighting the plight of Syrian refugee children. And as Amnesty International’s Digital Program Manager, she filmed and produced content for a range of high-profile human rights campaigns.

For two years from early 2021, she was based on the Far North Coast of NSW, Australia, working for non-profit Screenworks as their Industry Development Manager, creating programs and initiatives for drama, feature film and documentary filmmakers in regional, rural and remote Australia.

In January 2023, she relocated back to Sydney to take up an exciting new role as Head of Industry & Alumni Engagement at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), working at the heart of the domestic and international screen industry to create dynamic and relevant skills training and employment opportunities for film, TV and radio students and practitioners.

    We tried to get a reality show about our adventures on our motorcycles but no interest. We thought 2 women ADV touring would be a good idea…but we were humbled to think otherwise. LOL
