Senior Recruitment Consultant

Where are you from?

I was born in New Zealand and moved to Australia at 9 years old.

What's your past work experience?

I started my "office life" in the finance industry, working in Accounting, Financial Planning and Stockbroking firms. I've also had experience in Law firms and Corporate Compliance. I found my way into Educational Recruitment in 2014 and haven't looked back!

I'm the "fun Aunty" to 8 nieces and nephews, and I love to spoil them as much as I can with days out, adventuring. I'm a big fan of live music, theatre, stand-up comedy and musicals. I enjoy a good book, mostly crime thrillers and don't mind the odd puzzle and board-game nights.

A couple of interesting facts about me; I have been a contestant on a reality dating tv show (twice!) and I lived in Canada for 2 years and LOVE winter.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

If we held an office talent show, I’d wow everyone with my...

I think I'd have to give stand-up comedy a crack. It'd be mostly embarrassing stories of myself ending up in awkward situations and how I fumbled my way out of them.
