Her life changed dramatically when she met with the franchisee of Pola Cosmetics and started that business for him in Australia-eventually becoming the CEO of Pola Cosmetics and managing and motivating the sales team she built from zero to nearly 5000 consultants around Australia and New Zealand and a multi-million dollar business.

That achievement led to her becoming the first Telstra Victorian Business Woman of the Year in 1995.

- Has been on the Board of many different companies including the public company PMP,Australia's largest printing business,National Pharmacies,The World Master Games,Tourism Victoria,Melbourne Storm and the Queen Victoria Market.
