Nuala was passionate about encouraging and promoting women in Engineering, often giving her time attending school assemblies to speak directly to girls
on a future in engineering. She was active in the IEEE and in Business Chicks.

Nuala also found time to be involve in her local community: in the P&C at Haberfield Public School, where she served as treasurer, in the Haberfield Association, and in wildlife conservation and protection. At the height of the bushfires in 2020, despite her own battle with cancer she was
