Program Leader

previously Program Leader

What is your role at Startmate?

I help build new communities and launch, design and facilitate new programs!

Favourite Quote?

Comparison is the thief of joy

Favourite Book?

An absolute lover of fiction, one of my favourites is The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón - it completely transports you to the gothic streets of Barcelona in the mid-1940’s.

What’s the first job you’ve ever had, and what did you learn from it?

I worked at Wendy’s for almost 6 years. I perfected the ratio of cheese, mustard and tomato sauce to make the ultimate hotdog.

What would be your alternative career?

To own a permaculture farm. Don’t ask me for farming tips but I love the concept and thought of being surrounded by nature and animals every day!
