She has contributed to successful submissions that have secured more than $20M in Capital Funding via ACAR and through Aged Care Regional, Rural and Remote Infrastructure Grants.

Peta has been fortunate to be involved in major projects across the aged care sector including conducting strategic review and financial risk assessment of applicants for Department of Health & Ageing health care infrastructure funding; industry benchmarking; and developing a Pricing Plan package that provides the industry with a financial modelling tool that aligns pricing strategies with business strategies. As a member of the Bentleys’ Network Health and Aged Care specialist group, she continues to enjoy working with providers in this sector to deliver practical solutions and assist them to navigate the changing industry landscape.
