Direct from Rebecca

I am thrilled to share with you my extensive background and expertise in crisis management and emerging threats, spanning over 25 years. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of collaborating with both government and non-government organisations, honing my skills in counterterrorism and public health with unwavering dedication.

My passion for risk management, policy development, and capacity building has allowed me to contribute significantly to various projects across four different regions worldwide. Notable career milestones include a decade spent at NSW Police Forensic Counter Terrorism, followed by three rewarding years within INTERPOL's prestigious Counter Terrorism and Emerging Threats Directorate. Subsequently, I had the privilege of contributing my knowledge for two years at the esteemed World Health Organisation, specifically within the Global Health Emergencies Program. Recently, I've been humbled to serve as a Senior Fellow for the United Nations, working with UNICRI.

My specialized skills in Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) crime, Disaster Victim Identification, Health Security, and Business Continuity have allowed me to become a recognised global leader in Bioterrorism prevention and Biosecurity. The experience gained from working on complex international programs has provided me with invaluable insights, enabling me to bring the best practices to the Sention community.

As I continue to embrace every opportunity for growth and learning, I am excited about the positive impact I can make in my field. My commitment to professionalism and optimism fuels my passion to overcome challenges and contribute to a safer and more secure world. I look forward to further collaborations and making a difference on a global scale.
