Born in Auckland, New Zealand, she moved  to Australia in her late teens where she studied accounting, taking first honors in all Australia upon the termination of her studies. Her theosophical career began in Sydney, Australia, where she attended a lecture by Geoffrey Hodson and with whom she subsequently developed a lifelong friendship.
