Other projects under my responsibilities are The Carrington Boxhill, NorthCote Hill, Chase Apartment and Bee croft. 

Before joining Landream, I worked as an Assistant Development Manager/Superintendent’s representative for Bensons Property Group, a private Australian apartment developer. In this role I developed a range of medium density apartments as well as mixed use and commercial projects.

Prior to settling in Australia, I worked for Raimon Land. The listed company is a major luxury residential property developer in Thailand. My best achievement there was the delivery of the award winning apartment project of South East Asia, “The River” which had 806 apartments, mixed-use services apartment, retails and mall. 

Tell us about the challenges and triumphs you have faced as a female in a male-dominated industry

“Yes, it is a male-dominate business. So, I always make sure that I am acting as the Voice , not the Echo .”

If you could say one thing to young females looking to enter the industry – what would it be?

“Be Brave, Be Bold, Be Strong and Be Original. You are doing great…. just to dream to be here.”
