Lending Solutions

Lending Specialist, Dip. FMBM / MFAA member

I pride myself on taking the time to educate people about their financial decisions. Arranging finance is often portrayed as a daunting and stressful process, so I aim to do all I can to ensure our clients feel comfortable, informed and successful when it comes to achieving their financial goals. When faced with a scenario – no matter how simple or complex – I love taking the time to find the right solution. I take a personal approach and like to get to know and understand my clients as best I can. I feel that a friendly and ongoing relationship is more beneficial than just a “one-off transaction”.

Out of the office, I’m an avid sports fan! I’m a huge Western Bulldogs fan and love following and understanding the complex sport of F1.  During winter, you’ll find me trying to ski as fast as I can down the slopes, and for the rest of the year, I’ll be playing cricket, golf and dodgeball! I also love to locate walking tracks all around Melbourne to take in new scenery, and I can never go past a beer with good mates too.

I have Kiwi blood, but I grew up in Essendon until my early teenage years and then had the privilege of living in Mornington for 7-years. I’ve now moved back to be closer to the city, as that’s where I’m best suited! I have a cat named Abby, who is a menace but still manages to put a massive smile on my face when coming home each day.

Not many people know this, but I have a fairly decent part of my home dedicated to my Star Wars Lego collection!

I’ve been helping a range of clients with their investment and owner-occupied home loans since 2015 – whether they be individual borrowers, complex corporate or trust scenarios.I take a client-focused approach and strive to provide the best experience during what can be a stressful time for most people. I take time to get to know each client’s individual circumstances, and what’s really important to them. The most satisfying part of the job is helping people to achieve their goals/life milestones – whether it be purchasing a new home, up-sizing or downsizing, or releasing equity from their property for a much-deserved trip or new car.

Aside from work, I love to travel and discover new places. Having recently moved to Mornington, I’m loving the beach lifestyle with my husband and staff, Cookie.

I am passionate about giving people the knowledge and tools to achieve their personal goals. Nothing is better than helping others meet the aspirations that they once believed were only dreams. I find immense fulfillment and pride in being part of their journey. I am always looking to be better than I was yesterday in all aspects of my life. I endeavour to be a person our clients can rely on, who will roll up their sleeves and get to work. At my core, I value effort and commitment above all else.

I am a bit of an old soul at heart, and I love nothing more than spending a night in with a warm cup of tea and my cats. As a former athlete, I relish the chance to engage in a bit of friendly competition through sports and board games. You will often find me exploring nature with my beautiful little family, whether it be hiking, camping, or fishing.

Nothing motivates me more than an opportunity to change someone’s life and help them achieve financial liberty. Working with open-minded people both within the team and clients is why I come to work every day. Whether it’s a simple or complex scenario, I, along with our superstar team, always go above and beyond to achieve each clients’ ultimate goal whilst delivering a 5-star experience. People are only getting busier so it’s important our clients have a team in their corner to do all the leg work and provide strong advice to enable them to focus on what matters most, without any financial stress.

I take the time to truly understand what it is my clients are trying to achieve. I focus on developing rapport to ensure utmost comfort when discussing finance needs. With nearly 5 years of experience in the finance world, I’ll use my knowledge to provide education to my clients, along with a tailored finance solution that ticks all the boxes. When it comes to solutions, I aim to provide a holistic service. Whether clients are looking for residential or commercial finance, purchasing property or refinancing, I’ll research the suitable options for them and provide a loan proposal in terms we can all understand, explaining the ‘why’ and not just the ‘what’.

In winter you’ll find me playing AFL, and I try my best to keep fit and healthy all year round. I grew up in Maribyrnong in Melbourne’s western suburbs, but am now a city kid after moving to St Kilda East in 2019. I love to socialise and spend as much time as I can with family and friends, whether it’s a beer at the pub or a walk/run on a nice day. In my spare time, I also like to learn about earth and the solar system – while also educating myself about ways to preserve our forests and oceans, and the animals who live in them!
