I'm so very humbled to be named the Australian Information Industries Association ICT Woman of the Year. Thank you all for your support. This is a win for all of us! :)
I am also very proud to share it with the talented Brynlea from St Aidan's who I met at last years Young ICT Explorers Awards, and Darcelle Hinze and Belinda Rex (a joint nomination with fellow group members Chelsea McGuiness and Ashley Burns) for their Kidz@GCU Mobile App. The app was developed as part of their third year project at my Alumni Griffith University. The fabulous #techgirls showed off their software at the Tech Girls Are Superheroes launch in Brisbane in March - I'm really proud of them! Their project won the inaugural Opmantek Award last year and gave the group significant exposure http://app.griffith.edu.au/news/2013/06/13/it-and-multimedia-students-get-competitive-edge/
Thank you Desiree Kelly aka Dreamstar from Team QUT for the nomination and to Dr Sue Nielsen, the story director, for the brilliant reference!

Wish me luck at the National awards on the 29th of August! :)
