Xyst in action
I am passionate about public open space and supporting government agencies in the provision of equitable open space.
I am never too far from Victoria’s beautiful coastline, paddle boarding, walking, and enjoying its rugged beauty. Much of my spare time is spent with family and loving life as a grandparent.
I build strong meaningful relationships with colleagues, clients and friends which I will be expanding through Xyst.
