I have been a member of U3APP since at least 2017 and have very much enjoyed learning from the wonderful volunteers who give their time so generously. Being mostly retired now gives me the opportunity to contribute to the management committee as my way of saying thank you and giving back in a meaningful way.
Albert Park has been home for the last 25 years, but I have lived in the city of Port Phillip for 40 years. I am a member of two local tennis clubs and have been on both management committees, play Bridge with my husband Bob Snell, am in my 5th year of Beginner’s French at U3A, belong to two book clubs, and am a regular attendee at the theatre and classical music concerts.
My professional background is in finance and governance, with qualifications in Accounting, IT, Corporate Governance, and being a graduate of the AICD Director’s course. Being an FCPA, FAICD, FGIA, FCG, and with an MBA helps explain my commitment to life-long learning and my interest in U3A’s course offerings. Since retiring from my executive career I have been a director on a number of Victorian Government boards, Agencies and Audit & Risk committees.
