She contributes probono as Vice President on the board of Vets Beyond Borders, an Australian-based non-profit organisation that provides veterinary aid to partners in developing communities. She has been closely involved in international animal welfare and public health projects in a probono capacity since 2006, with experiences in India, China, Vanuatu and the Northern Territory. Her professional background is in veterinary science, pharmacology and business management with experiences in private practice, industry and academia. She is currently working as a veterinary consultant in the pharmaceutical industry.Vets Beyond Borders' VetTrain program is going beyond implementing rabies control programs to giving local communities the tools, skills and motivations to create the change for themselves.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
