After graduating from Charles Sturt University in Australia, with a degree in Business (Accounting & Management), I began my career in finance as company secretary and loan administrator within a mortgage broking firm. A few more years were spent saving and working in a number of industries, before I switched my focus to travel and set off on a 9 month backpacking and volunteering trip through Asia and Europe. I decided to make the permanent move to London in May 2018.
I joined Berkeley after deciding that I wanted to increase my skill set and knowledge base within the business world, and wanted to work in a fast paced, varied and fun environment. Berkeley offered all of these opportunities and so much more. The workplace culture is second to none, with a huge amount of effort put towards making sure every staff member is warmly welcomed, and very much a member of the team. From day one I have felt highly valued and formed fantastic relationships with both staff and clients alike.
Outside of work I love to socialise, fantastic food and wine are a must and a great live sporting match is a bonus! I enjoy spending time with friends and family, making the most of London life and seeing different parts of the UK. I’ve visited 21 countries across Europe and plan to travel many more!
