Originally from Auckland, New Zealand I moved to Sydney in 2002 and then to the Sunshine Coast in 2016.  

After 14 years of fabulous Sydney city living we realised quickly after the birth of our second child in 2016 that we'd outgrown our inner city terrace and it was the perfect time to bite the bullet and relocate the family to the Sunshine Coast and start living an active outdoors life.

I have over 14 years in finance and home loan lending. More recently as owner of Mortgage Choice, Peregian Beach as well as a Mortgage Choice franchise in the Inner West of Sydney.  Prior to that I was General Manager of a boutique financial services company in Circular Quay, Sydney for 11 years.  

The desire to work for myself had been something I wanted to do all of my working life.  When selecting a franchise to join I was looking for a model that not only fitted with me but also one that would fit with my clients and the Mortgage Choice paid the same model really resonated with me.  How I get paid is not influenced what-so-ever by the lender that you choose,  I like that and I hope you do too.

As a home owner and property investor I get excited at growing our wealth which is mostly through property and business investment and take so much satisfaction in helping my clients do the same.

My greatest personal achievements include my two young children, running the Paris marathon in 2011 (however since the birth of our first child in early 2014 and second in 2016 I have toned it down a bit!).  I now enjoy xtend barre classes, bootcamp and running anywhere on the Sunshine Coast.  The odd trip back to New Zealand keeps me in touch with my roots but you'll mostly find me here on the Sunshine Coast.

I have a Graduate Diploma of Applied Finance, a Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning), a Diploma of Mortgage Lending and am one subject from completing my Master of Applied Finance. 

I believe it is important to love what you do - both professionally and personally and for me that's helping my clients to either pay down debt or to buy property and to be an awesome mother and wife.  I live by the motto, 'Work - Life - Blend'.

My career has been varied and diverse and this sets me up to help clients find the best finance solution for their needs. I started my life as an electrician before moving into sales and management in a Multinational company which involved in a start up lighting company. Having worked in both small and large businesses, I have witnessed first hand how good finance can help businesses and individual's thrive. 

Being Self Employed myself, I have an understanding on how small businesses are run and what is involved. I know the challenges businesses can face when it comes to obtaining finance and the stresses business owners can face - which is why we are committed to giving you the right answer and solutions quickly.

I'm also pasionate about real estate, having undertaken 4 renovations and having investment properties inside and outside of Superannuation and love helping clients achieve this as well.

A retired triathlon enthusiast and architecture admirer, I am an outdoor lover originally from Auckland. Myself and my wife Larissa made the move from New Zealand to Sydney in 2002, spending 14 years there growing into a family of four where we still have a Mortgage Choice franchise. We recently took the plunge to move our little family north to the Sunshine Coast and absolutely love the tropical change. When I'm not with the family or working I'm riding the roads of Sunshine Coast or running the trails.

  • your intial enquiry and preparation for meeting with a broker
  • helping you to get all of the required paperwork together (as seamlessly as possible!)
  • ensuring that once you select your home loan your application is submitted to the bank/lender as a matter of priority
  • Keep you updated throughout the entire process - from initial meeting through to settlement and there on after

I have recently become part of Gordon & Larissa's exciting and reputable team at their new Peregian Beach location.

Previously, I was a Real Estate Agent for 5 years in Mackay, before travelling overseas for just under two years. I have only recently made the move to the gorgeous Sunshine Coast; drawn to the endless adventures, stunning beaches and relaxed lifestyle!

I find the finance industry extremely interesting and soon hope to be a First Home Buyer myself - and what better place than the Sunshine Coast. When I am not working (beachside!), you can find me enjoying the surf, exploring the Sunshine Coast hinterlands and running! 

Come in and say hello today - I look forward to meeting with you!
