Ausdance CEO January 2013 – October 2016, previously holding the position of Ausdance ACT Director in 2005 – 07. I am a Graduate member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and hold a BA (History and Political Science) from ANU. I was a member of the ACT Legislative Assembly (2001 – 04), being the youngest woman ever elected to a parliament in Australia, at that time. Serving as a cross-bench member allowed me to gain an understanding of the diversity the Canberra community and a rich insight into political processes. I have volunteered on a range of boards for organisations such as the YWCAs of Australia and Canberra, and Canberra Arts Marketing. Currently I am Deputy Chair of the World YWCA Nominations Committee.
Every year, for the last twenty years, Tracks Dance Company has been an integral part of the Darwin Festival. To celebrate this amazing milestone, the company looked to the sea and the sky of Darwin and created a dance work reflective of the warmth of Darwin and the popular local experience of ending the day with the setting sun. Last Light was performed against a countdown into the night, with a cast of local professional and community dancers.
