I became a financial planner in 1999 following 11 years working in taxation and after operating
various businesses in the UK and Tokyo. I figured that combination of knowledge and experience would
provide a good base to build on while also catering for my love of working with people and helping
improve their situations.
In the UK I ran my own financial planning practice and also provided advice to UK banking clients across West London. I moved to Australia in 2004 and initially worked for 2 of the big four banks in their corporate and business advice sections before starting my own Financial Advice business in 2009.
I became part of Picture Wealth in 2021 so I can continue to bring my clients the very best of advice and service, utilising innovative technology to help keep pace with the changing financial advice environment.
I am happiest in nature and an animal lover.
An occasional breeder of specialist canines for dog sports, in which I am an enthusiastic competitor with my three Rottweilers.
I am on the committee and Treasurer of multiple Dog Sport clubs, active in encouraging canine owners through education and training to ensure their dogs are excellent citizens. I also provide articles on training for a global canine magazine.
I love France and spending time with my family renovating our 13th century chateau part ruin! I am also passionate about alternative health and wellbeing (utilising nature as much as possible) and politics!
From time to time I also collapse in a heap with a glass of red wine and a good book.
