Ira worked as a Project Engineer in Downstream Oil & Gas in Distribution, Commercial and Retail roles for petroleum companies Shell Australia and Mobil Oil Hong Kong. She lived overseas in the Hague, and after raising three children, completed studies in multimedia before returning to work. She has a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering from Monash University. When Ira is not working on NAWO she juggles the activities of her 3 children, particularly her youngest daughter’s calisthenics and the needs of her teenage VCE student!
Why am I passionate about NAWO? When I worked in the oil and gas industry there was no organisation like NAWO to provide guidance and support. Every event from NAWO is unique and useful.
