National Sustainability Manager, Project Management and Construction
"Sustainability manager, mother and married to Mark."
Orginally and architect by degree, I have had a very eclectic career with Lend Lease in Australia involving work in construction project management, organisational development and learning, innovation and more recently sustainability. I am married with three young children who have inspired my 'other' career of writing children's music. I am a keen swimmer and singer and advocate for love of this amazing planet we have come from!
Much of what makes a workplace unhealthy can't be seen – like VOCs (a human carcinogen) in paints, carpets and furniture. We could offer employees bulk deals on ‘healthy’ versions of these products for their homes, and make them standard at work.
Balance leave entitlements to be ‘sick’ by also offering employees ‘health leave’: time out to benefit the body and soul – health or meditation retreats, time to detox, take a hike, get that medical - leave that inspires health and wellbeing.
