I am Chief Executive of the Green Building Council of Australia. I am a passionate advocate for green building, sustainable communities and cities, nationally and internationally. In 2012, I was named in the Australian Financial Review's '100 Women of Influence' list.

I am a board member of the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC), the international umbrella organisation of more than 90 green building councils, and the Chair of its International Rating Tools Task group.

I am also a member of a number of Australian Government advisory groups associated with green buildings and sustainable communities including the National Urban Policy Forum and National Sustainability Council.

A regular media commentator on achieving work/life balance, I am a volunteer lifesaver and ocean swimmer in my spare time.
