About

Experience

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.

My financial planning career began over a decade ago in Canberra where I gained considerable knowledge in taking a strategic approach to developing financial plans for clients while gaining deep understanding of the APS and Military defined benefit superannuation schemes (including the MSBS and PSS). I was excited to embrace change and join the EJM team in 2019 where I have found a true passion within the entire business in creating happiness for their clients. I have always seen myself as an excellent problem solver, and listener with a highly strategic approach to improving the position and life of my clients. Adding a foundational principle of “creating happiness” and the wide ranging effects having this as a daily guiding light causes gives me great confidence and pride in what I can offer to you.

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