“Collaboration brings out the best ideas.”

As Senior Planner for the NSW Department of Planning and Environment, Ana analyses policy positions and provides advice based on evidence and community needs. 

“It’s a meeting of minds to unravel issues and explore solutions,” she says. 

While some issues form a bigger challenge than others, Ana’s role keeps her busy and allows her to play a valuable part in shaping the future of NSW.

“The solution we can provide to any issue is all part of creating a better future for the State,” she says enthusiastically. 

To develop her networking, leadership and communication skills, Ana is a member of Toastmaster Rockdale outside of work. 

“It’s a great organisation which offers training on a wide variety of topics on engagement and public speaking,” she says.  

Ana gives back to the community in her spare time as a volunteer not only for one, but two great causes in our community. 

“I volunteer as a judge for the ‘Keep Australia Beautiful, NSW’ organisation, which works for a litter-free and sustainable Australia, and I also help at Canice’s Kitchen in Kings Cross, preparing and offering free meals to everyone who just needs a feed.
