I began my career in Hospitality, Customer Services initially and then Executive Administration. I’ve worked across many industries in various states including Advertising, Information Technology, Banking, Retail, Pharmacy Wholesaling and are I’m now settled in Real Estate.

What has been the most memorable achievement in your career to date? In the mid 90’s whilst working in hospitality, I worked closely with an external Public Relations company to relaunch a famous hotel that had endured a major renovation and name change. Located in the glitzy part of the Gold Coast, it was fun times and we worked tirelessly for it all to come together – the result was awesome!!

What are some of Peninsula’s best kept secrets? Definitely the wineries, there are too many great ones to list. The various walking tracks in and around Mount Martha, particularly the track on the Esplanade to Mornington. The Briars, there’s something for everybody – Café, walking tracks, fauna, picnic facilities – a great spot for group catch ups…
