Certified Practicing Accountant (CPA), Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting), Specialised in Superannuation – SMSFs Proficient in Class Super, Simple Fund (BGL), Xero, MYOB, Quickbooks, Banklink, Handisoft.​

Of my 20 years of experience as an accountant, 15 years have been in Superannuation, primarily Self-Managed Super Funds.  The constantly changing environment of the SMSF industry enables me to feed my passion for learning to ensure the funds stay compliant.  Being on a Board, being a director of a few private companies and working mainly for public practices has given me an in-depth understanding of issues associated with small businesses and the ability to find resolutions.  A passion for helping people, led me to become an NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Master Practitioner and Certified Life Coach and I believe that a shift in your mindset can greatly improve your business.
