Funder Overview:

I am the Founder of Modibodi, a leak-proof apparel brand, providing a sustainable and more comfortable alternative to disposable hygiene. My vision with Modibodi was for all people to have higher expectations of the physical, emotional and ethical comfort they get from clothing, forgo disposables, and feel empowered to live more comfortably in themselves, without limitations.

I have won numerous awards including the 2018 NSW Business Woman of the Year Award and 2021 Veuve Cliquot Bold Woman award. Modibodi also won the People's Choice Award and Medium Business Awards at the 2019 National Telstra Business Awards, and was recognised by the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences and acquired in its permanent collection as an Australian Innovation.

After 10 years at the helm of Modibodi as CEO, I sold Modibodi to global health company Essity in 2022. I was awarded an Order of Australia Medal in 2023 for my contribution to business, and for championing women’s health.

I am now dedicating my time to my 4 kids, investing in and advising female owned, social impact led businesses, and through philanthropy within the areas of sustainability and gender equity.

Please DM me if you are a female founder with an impact-led business who is looking for advice and investment or a charity who is looking for advice and financial support in the areas above.
