Her career has taken her to peace-keeping zones with the Australian military, tea with the British Royal family, prisons and parliament and on special assignments with Qantas emergency and pilot training, Red Bull Extreme Sports and F1 Racing teams. These extraordinary experiences have helped shape her unique I.P.s. She studied Law at Sydney University and is a graduate of North Sydney's Film & TV School.
