Born and raised in Albury/Wodonga region, I live in Table Top with my two children, Cooper & Summer. I graduated from Charles Sturt University with a Bachelor of Business in 2002, then moving onto being a member of the Chartered Accountants of Australia in 2009.
I love the Albury/Wodonga region because the majority of my family is here and also because it is a small community; you get to know the people; it is a nice feeling to go out and about and meet and greet the people you know. Albury/Wodonga and the local region has some great restaurants and activities to keep you busy on the weekends, it is also not too far to drive to Melbourne or Sydney to also enjoy the activities that the cities have to offer.
I started with ATS, as a Director in July 2015, moving from Huon Partners. Upon the merger of ATS Partners & STM, I joined STM as an Associate Director in 2021. I specialise in compliance and tax planning. I have a range of clients giving me the diversity to be able to provide advice to all types of businesses. I have extensive experience using MYOB and QuickBooks as well as many other accounting software programs. I have also been involved in business benchmarking and setting up new businesses. I thrive on providing sound advice and being available for clients when they need my help in any situation.
There is nothing more enjoyable then seeing your client's business thrive and watch them grow from sometimes a small individual sole trader to a large company employing many local people.
I enjoy the support that you get from working in a firm like STM (I don't believe you always get this in larger accounting firms). STM has a flexible work environment which makes it easy for me to raise my two children and work full time. I just love working with great people, who are not only my colleagues, but also my friends.
I have many interests which include running, playing and coaching netball. I really enjoy cooking, love travelling locally and overseas and eating at nice restaurants. Throughout the festival season that our region has to offer, you may often see me with my family as with my love of cooking, I sometimes have some spare time to bake and sell some of my favourite home cooked foods at local market stalls and festivals.
