I have a keen interest in contract and project management as well as industry engagement. Having significant experience in top-tier commercial legal offices together with the skills I have gained whilst at UQ as a liaison between researchers and the Central administrative support units at UQ assists me greatly my current role as the Portfolio Support Office and as Business Manager to the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre. Enabling the building of strong and enduring relationships and open communication with our clients is very important to me. The most enjoyable aspect of my role is the daily interaction with my colleagues. Everyday we face opportunities and challenges together and I gain considerable personal satisfaction from supporting the team and being a part of a job well done.
