My motivation to promote potable reuse as a feasible option for a climate resilient future has allowed me to be an integral part of the AWA Water Recycling Specialist Network Committee. Taking the lead role has allowed me to voice the breadth of experience & knowledge of the committee members with respect to the future of water recycling.

Water Literacy & Education
I was inspired to take a lead role on the Specialist Network as I wanted to advocate for the development of a national set of guiding principles for protecting drinking water source catchments, something I’m deeply passionate about. I also wanted to give something back to an industry that has provided me with many opportunities.
I have worked within the water industry for nearly 20 years in a range of areas and am currently in the engineering space with experience in treatment planning and design for various water types. I see the Water Quality Specialist Network as a vehicle to achieve a connected water quality community where we can share ideas, challenges, solutions and successes.
I have the privilege to manage the asset lifecycle section at Aqwest in Bunbury South West WA. I joined the Asset Management Specialist Network because it is a sector tailored group of people that focus on sharing the experiences in contemporary asset management across the country and across the whole service chain of the water cycle.
