She loves very long walks, good design, coffee, yoga, stories and colliding with passionate, interesting people who want to make an impact in the world around them. 

Nadia Woodhouse- B-Corp

Nadia sits on the Board of B Lab Australia, the local nonprofit dedicated to using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Lab drives this systemic change by building a community of Certified B Corporations to make it easier for to tell the difference between “good companies” and good marketing.
