Raised in the northern suburbs by a single mother with 3 siblings, growing up was challenging. I completed my high school education and began my working career in the legal field at the age of 16, working my way up the corporate ladder learning about the internal running of all areas of a legal practice. During this period of time I had children, and married and after 13 years working in the industry and being faced with a family tragedy, I decided to end my career and took time off to focus on my 2 daughters.
In 1998 I was given an opportunity to work for a small accounting firm and took up studying Accounting and Taxation at TAFE, whilst gaining on-the-job experience. Over 11 years later, I decided it was time to invest in a future of my own and was granted my registration as a tax agent in 2010 and received my Practicing Certificate as a fellow with the NTAA in November 2010.
In 2000 I remarried and we had a son together. Life was finally starting to look bright. Our family was growing and I had a direction in where I wanted to see my future. It was important for me to have a career to show my children that it was ok for women to work and be successful. I am still today very passionate about women working in such a male orientated world and encourage my children and staff to succeed in all that they choose in life.
In 2007 I was diagnosed with severe depression and sought psychological help. This treatment continued through to 2014. Today life is still challenging but rewarding and I seek alternative therapies to assist with my state of mind. I am very spiritually minded and live my life accordingly along with red wine…..
I am passionate about my business, career, staff and clients and do my best to provide a professional yet personal experience.
