Rebecca founded the Centre for Women’s Economic Safety (CWES) to raise awareness of economic abuse as a form of domestic and family violence and advocate for structural and systems change to support women’s financial safety. From 2018 to 2021 she also worked at Insight Exchange (Domestic Violence NSW Service Management), with a focus on economic abuse and the impact of domestic and family violence on financial wellbeing.
Rebecca developed her passion for financial well-being while working as a Communications Executive at the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA). In that capacity, she was an Executive Committee member and Campaign Director for MoneySmart Week before being appointed founding CEO of not-for-profit organisation, Financial Literacy Australia in 2013.
Before Insight Exchange and CWES, she worked for the Commonwealth Bank (CBA) developing its Employee Financial Wellbeing Program. As a member of CBA’s Domestic and Family Violence Working Group Rebecca worked with a range of experts to develop the Women’s Financial Wellbeing Guide and partnered with Domestic Violence NSW to produce the Addressing Financial Abuse Guide. She also led the development of the bank’s first Financial Inclusion Action Plan.
Rebecca has an MBA and a Masters of Media Practice from the University of Sydney.
