I founded Wild Women On Top to empower women to achieve extraordinary goals AND change lives. I believe we should live our dreams and that positive thinking is the basis of a happy life. I have spent the last 10 years working with women in teams and I’ve learned that Together Everyone Achieves More. I believe in doing interesting things with interesting people and adding value.
Di is passionate about women’s health and her team has raised nearly a million dollars for The Fred Hollows Foundation through the Wild Women On Top Sydney Coastrek. She seeks to empower women to achieve extraordinary goals and follow their dreams. Di founded Wild Women on Top to encourage and promote leadership skills in women by providing opportunities for team building and personal development. Her teams travel to amazing places, accomplish incredible things with like minded professional women and have the opportunity to fulfill humanitarian goals. They combine extreme adventure challenges with fundraising for The Fred Hollows Foundation and The Australian Himalayan Foundation. She has been a physical educator for over 30 years, and a trekker and mountain climber for ten.
