In 2003, in the course of my former life in financial management, I was asked to manage one organisation’s forward-thinking CRM Strategy and system implementation. I was so inspired, that I made the decision to focus my career on technology use in the community sector.

I then went back to uni (Macquarie University in Sydney) and completed a Master of Commerce in information systems with a Master of Information Technology (MCom/MIT).

In 2007 I joined Energetica, a company specialising in technology solutions for not-for-profit organisations, as a Lead CRM Project Manager.

In the following years, I have guided the successful design and implementation of Customer Relationship Management systems (CRMs) for membership based organisations, professional associations, local government and service-provision community based organisations.

I started Edge of knowledge to partner with clients, providing the expertise that organisations implementing new systems and processes must deploy in order to succeed.
