I have worked in various roles within the financial planning industry since 2002 full-time.

My career commenced in an Accounting / Financial Planning practice where I was Authorised to provide financial advice to clients whilst also continuing to provide lending advice (mortgages and consumer vehicle lending)

In 2007 I moved into a compliance audit role and have worked within various AFSL’s in the same capacity all over Australia. I have an in depth understanding of the legislation and in my Head of Advice role continue to enjoy providing support to Authorised Representatives I mentor (implementing process changes and advice efficiencies).

After 9 years specialising in compliance and risk / management roles, I am now managing a large wealth management business in Melbourne and play an important role of developing and implementing business initiatives as well as advising a number of clients
