BEc, Grad Dip FCA, Fellow Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand
Margaret is a chartered accountant. She brings a practical and common sense attitude to issues and is committed to applying a fair and just approach.
Margaret was a Partner at McDonald Carter (Chartered Accountants) and a Senior Associate at Nexia Australia's Melbourne office. Margaret also served on the Nominating Committee of the International Federation of Accountants for four years. The committee met five times a year, in cities around the world; Margaret found it fascinating to work with accountants from many other countries and to discover much commonality between these professionals. Margaret continues to serve on the federation's International Selection Panel.
Margaret's contribution to her professional field has been formally recognised with a Meritorious Services Award for services to The Institute of Chartered Accountants (2004) (now Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand).
For Margaret, being involved in the Jean Hailes for Women's Health Board is an opportunity to give back. She has particularly enjoyed seeing the organisation achieve and grow, and she has taken great pleasure in being a part of this success.
In addition to her involvement with Jean Hailes for Women's Health, Margaret served as a Director of Chunky Move and is currently a Director of Lucy Guerin Inc – both highly awarded dance companies. These opportunities have given Margaret great insight into the contemporary dance field.
