7 Yrs Experience
Yarraville, VIC 3013

I have been part of the financial services industry since 2005 initially working in banking and then insurance before joining the financial planning profession in 2007. I fell in love with financial planning as it is the one area of finance where I can use my knowledge and insight to help make a positive impact in people’s lives.

The financial planning phase of my career began over a decade ago in Canberra where I worked on strategy develompent and financial modelling at first which allowed me to gain a considerable depth of knowledge across all areas of advice (including a deep understanding of Public Service and Military defined benefit superannuation schemes before entering the client facing side.

I work closely with every client to truly understand their financial and lifestyle goals so with tailored advice based on well-considered strategy and modelling. My qualifications include:

Bachelor of Economics (Honours) and a Diploma of Financial Planning. I am also currently working through a Masters of Applied Finance.
