She has more than 10 years of experience in the field of industrial water solutions, corporate water stewardship and sustainable financing.

In China, she established and runs AWS China, heading a team to design and implement on-ground water stewardship programmes for leading MNCs, global brands, Chinese corporations as well as industrial parks and even university campuses.
