"All the members of our team bring a different background and perspective to the mix. Some of the unique attributes that I bring to the team are a product of my own background - I am a young woman who grew up on a remote sheep farm, spent my school and university years working in child care and education, and then have worked with a number of different teams within Macquarie.”
