Isabel graduated in 2021, where she was school captain. Isabel's dedication to her studies is matched by her commitment to making a positive impact on her community. She has gained valuable industry experience through her participation in a BHP First Year Internship, working in manufacturing engineering as an undergraduate and is currently a 2024 UQ Neurotech Partnerships Executive.

Isabel's passion for social responsibility and volunteerism is evident in her involvement with Hike to Heal Australia, a non-for-profit organization that focuses on suicide prevention by engaging the community in an awareness campaign called “Hike to Heal Scavenger Hike”.

She has been actively involved with Peer Support programs and the Smith Family Foundation.
