Biography

I am a preventive health entrepreneur working to create a new social market for health and wellbeing outcomes in Australia. I am passionate about tackling social inequalities in obesity in children in particular, as nearly one third of our nations kids are now overweight or obese and it is getting worse. I have founded Health Futures Australia a new NFP to drive Australia's Healthiest Communities, a movement to activate community, sectoral and civic leadership to fight obesity nationwide.

 

My passion is to create a health revolution for all, build action platforms and changemaker teams to tip toward a new wellbeing economy whereby our prosperity as a nation is measured by our health and wellbeing. I am inspired by social innovation methodology, presencing, and have a deep appreciation of complexity, and system learning and re-design. I live in beautiful central Victoria, growing my own fruit and vegetables, cooking delicious food, and supporting my family and community groups to prosper where I can.
