Annie joined SisterWorks in 2018 as Engagement Lead. Annie’s background is in the retail world, managing the initial concept and design of product ranges, through to its final delivery in store. She has worked for many of Australia’s largest retailers and recalls being terrified upon discovering her first work trip was to China, alone, to negotiate tens of millions of dollars worth of orders, at just 21 years of age.
Although Annie has a long history in the corporate world, her real passions are PEOPLE and PURPOSE. She adores people, and loves nothing more than sitting down with a stranger, friend or acquaintance to hear about their life. She believes the way we can find our purpose in life is to use our unique skills and talents to contribute to the world in a positive way.
Annie is an advocate for asylum seeker and refugee rights and has volunteered with various organisations around Melbourne. Her passion for people and purpose has also led her to work and volunteer internationally with communities in Kenya, Uganda and Nepal.
Outside of SisterWorks, Annie loves to spend time outdoors, hiking and camping. She also adores dance, travelling, her nephews, summer days, curries and passionfruit.
