Izan completed her Bachelor of Economics degree with first class honours at Monash University and completed her MBA and PhD degrees at the Graduate School of Business (now named Chicago Booth), University of Chicago.

Her first academic appointment after completing her PhD was as a lecturer at the Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM) at the University of New South Wales.

Izan first joined UWA in 1981. In 1990, she became the first woman in Australia to be appointed Professor in the disciplines of accounting and finance. She served as Head of the Department of Accounting and Finance from January 1994 to December 1999. She left UWA to take up an appointment as Executive Dean of the Division of Business, IT and Law at Murdoch University in April 1999, but returned to UWA in June 2000.

In 2004, Izan was elected a Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia. In 2011, the Australian Learning and Teaching Council awarded her a Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning.

At UWA, Izan has served as Chair of the University’s Academic Promotions Committee and Deputy Chair of the Academic Board. She was the Inaugural Chair of the Board of Studies for the Bachelor of Commerce.

Izan has previously served as a director of AlintaGas (including serving as Chair of the Audit Committee) and the Black Swan Theatre Board (and member of the Finance Committee), and was the inaugural chair of Arts WA's Arts Venture Capital Board.
