With a background in financial advisory services, she has extensive experience in shaping and supporting transformation in some of the most complex environments across local government. Ebony believes that councils should take an outcomes-driven approach to financial sustainability, and enjoys helping leaders to surface and tackle the real obstacles to positive and lasting change.

Outside of work Ebony can usually be found indulging her love of good food, or out and about on adventures with her family. Right now there’s not much she doesn’t know about astronauts and firefighters!
