The NYPN Committee

We are all young professionals in one way or another and spend our days working in dynamic and diverse industries.The team is from a wide range of industries which creates many dynamic events to suit everyone. NYPN is a non for profit organisation, which means that the committee give up their spare time due to pure passion for the young professional sector in Tasmania. The committee also love to have a great time (and know how to have a great time) , so we can almost guarantee each event will be one not to miss!

Marketing Manager | Tourism Northern Tasmania
As a born and bred Tasmanian, I started out as a passionate marketing graduate determined to not leave the island. I wanted to stay to work in a sustainable, growth industry which I believed in and supported.   So there was no question that Tourism Northern Tasmania was exactly where I belonged! I live to advocate for Tasmania not only as a passionate local but also as a particularly excitable marketing manager. Digital Marketing and Partnership Management is where I spend the bulk of my time, but I love that two days are never the same at Tourism Northern Tasmania HQ!

When I’m not sharing the good word of Northern Tasmania, my passions include food & wine, volunteering for my local Rotary Club and hanging out with my golden retrievers.
