Funding Engagement

Guiding collaborations towards actionable solutions

I am a Funding Engagement Specialist at Callaghan Innovation helping align customers with the best funding for their situation and needs. Through my expertise in networking and connecting like-minded individuals, I excel in guiding collaborations which develop and communicate simple actionable solutions from complex situations. 

I thrive on challenges and embrace variety, maintaining a positive outlook that allows me to view difficulties as opportunities for personal and professional growth. Inspired by the wisdom of Brene Brown around courage, vulnerability, shame and empathy I am proud to be part of a team that has significantly reduced the submission-to-decision time for customers applying for grants.

The whole team at Callaghan Innovation, takes pride in helping customers articulate the "weird stuff" that could potentially become one of Aotearoa's strengths. We’re all on a mission to grow 100 word-beating, world-bettering companies. Our focus extends far beyond grant applications, as we provide services that support our customers throughout their innovation journey.
