Sabina has dedicated her career to influencing systemic change for impact and social justice. She has advised decision makers in international multilateral institutions, the Australian government, as a political adviser, in international civil society, and with the private sector.

 Sabina came to impact investing in 2015 when she recognised the enormous opportunity to drive positive societal and environmental change through the mobilisation of private resources. At Impact Investing Australia Sabina led policy development and advocacy for market building. Sabina is proud to have managed the award-winning Impact Investment Ready Growth Grant, supporting more than 70 for-purpose enterprises and more than 40 intermediaries across Australia.

Sabina’s experience in impact management was grounded in her work in international development. Her work has included participatory development at the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), in the Office of Development Effectiveness at AusAID and as an independent evaluation consultant, and impact investing MEL specialist to the DFAT Investing in Women program.

Last year Sabina joined with 4 other partners to establish Bridges Australia as Head of Impact.
