Why is being part of SA Woman important to you?
I have met so many inspiring South Australian businesswomen during my time as a member of first Sass Place, and now SA Woman. I celebrate the wins these women have forged as they juggle families, careers, businesses, and personal commitments. I have appreciated the sense of camaraderie, honesty, and authenticity shared at amazing events including Summit, Award nights, and coffee catch-ups. It’s wonderful to know we are not alone, that others have forged the path ahead of us, and that we can guide and support one another on our journey.
