In addition to an Advanced Diploma in Financial Services (Financial Planning), I also hold the internationally recognised Certified Financial PlannerTM practitioner designation, the industry’s highest accreditation. I'm a member of the Financial Planning Association.
I have over 24 years’ experience in both the Australian and South African financial services industry. I primarily works with busy professionals who are looking to outsource their financial affairs to enable them to maximise quality time with family and friends. I also works with more mature professionals and small business owners who are looking to cut back work to spend time pursuing more pleasurable pursuits, such as travel or time with grandchildren. In addition to having excellent technical skills, I believe that empathy, caring and a true understanding of a client’s personal and financial position will build stronger and more trusting long term relationships.
Keeping current is imperative in the financial services industry, and I achieve this as a tutor and lecturer in Financial Planning at the University of Tasmania.
Away from work, I am a keen runner and have recently achieved one of my greatest personal goals by completing the Gold Coast Marathon. Born and raised in South Africa, my husband and I immigrated to Australia in 2001 and have well and truly adapted to the 'Aussie" way of life.
