In one sentence, who are you and what do you do?
I am a secret introvert with a friendly and calming nature. I am one of the most organised people you’ll ever meet which is why I am a residential property manager.
What’s a fun fact most people don’t know about you?
I developed an interest in Olympic lifting when I started CrossFit prior to moving to Canberra. During the past 12 months, I commenced training at 12RNDS Belconnen which has given me a love for boxing.
Where did you grow up, and what is your earliest memory from there?
I was born and grew up in Bathurst, which is a nice country town. My earliest memory would be spending my weekends with my grandad. I moved to Canberra in 2017 and I go back to Bathurst every couple of months to see my family.
Where did you go to school, and what is your best memory from there?
I went to both primary school and high school in Bathurst. I didn’t really enjoy school as I was a nerdy musical kid, but now I appreciate my background and love for music.
What was your first job, and how did you get from there to where you are now?
I was a barista in a cafe when I was in high school. Once I finished school, I worked in numerous administration positions where I continued to study and gained my Certificate III in Business, and Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety. When I moved to Canberra, I started in administration for a commercial real estate company, allowing me to gain my registration and taking me on the path to property management. I studied and gained my real estate licence in 2019.
What do you like best about your current job?
I love working at VERV Property and I like being someone who my clients are happy to engage to manage their investment property. As I provide a highly detailed service, my owners build a tremendous level of trust and confidence in my capability as a property manager.
What do you like doing in your spare time?
I like going to the gym, and seeing and catching up with my friends. When I have a good weekend, I go home to see mum and dad and go out on the boat with them in summer.
What is your favourite national institution in Canberra where you take visitors?
When I first moved to Canberra, I visited the Australian War Memorial as it is nice to pay homage to those who have left us. I have attended the dawn service every year since moving to Canberra.
