I live & work in Melbourne, Australia with my first 'real job' commencing work in a business unit within a General Insurance company in early 1990.
With a strong growing interest in both technology (and what it could do for my company's business) & an equally strong desire to improve the company's function, I naturally gravitated to a BA role working through mid size to large projects across regulatory, compliance, web based and transformational projects.
Staying with Business Analysis for over 14 years, I took the next step into Business & Systems Analysis Practice Management to assist others to grow their Analysis skills & capability.
After this short career break, I moved back into a BA practitioner role in Australia's largest Private Health Insurance company in mid 2010 as a BA Team Lead in the Digital domain.
With a new focus and a continued desire to improve business effectiveness and operation, the next logical step was to formalise Agile delivery experience with a Certification as a Scrum Master.
This has now served me well across both Medibank & my most current role as Analysis Practice Manager in Consumer Digital at the ANZ bank, where I continue to employ and continuously improve my application of Agile practices and approaches to support our business in realising value sooner.
Outside of working hours, I enjoy spending time with my family, mountain biking & reading.
