What’s your story?
Growing up I always wanted to be a scientist; the idea of discovering the unknown and solving problems was always so exciting. However, after graduating with my Bachelor of Science, I realised I wanted a career that also involved working with other people (not just the lab rats!) to solve those problems.
I went on to complete my Masters of Business and joined NAB in 2013. Now I get to work with amazing people and have countless opportunities to help every single day.
How have you made a difference?
NAB is filled with talented people who genuinely care about the growth and development of those around them. I joined NAB almost five years ago and I am privileged to work with people and leaders who have shaped my career, my development and who I am as a person.
I think that NAB, and its people, play a big role in shaping the careers of many young Australians and nurturing them into strong leaders who question the norm, take ownership of solving problems and always strive for the best possible outcome.
What are you passionate about?
Since the age of five, I've been travelling to developing countries with my mum visiting orphanages and rural villages to offer aid and support. One of my most memorable moments was visiting a newly built classroom that we had raised funds for - I've never seen so many kids so happy to be at school! I think it's moments like these that really give you perspective on the day to day.
