It all started in late 2002. I was working for a property investment firm that branched into finance as well as property sales.  Here I was attempting to juggle both, but it just didn’t work. So I made the decision to focus on finance and joined a finance company working with some high achievers and seasoned professionals who taught me all that they knew. 

 

In 2004 I married the man of my dreams. Our first gorgeous son arrived in 2007 and two years later two more arrived at once (yes we had twins!).  Our family had grown virtually overnight!  During this time work had changed dramatically too.  The company I was with had sold to large corporate and the culture had changed.  My bosses were leaving so I took the plunge and opened my own finance company, Mortgage Finesse in 2009.  This gave me the flexibility I needed for our three little men while fulfilling my long term of dream of running my own business.

 

So much has happened since then.  We started out with a desk in the front entrance of my home, and after 3 more office moves have finally settled beachside in Edithvale. Here we can achieve some work life balance, as best we can anyway, and stay reasonably central for many of our clients. 

 

Over time I’ve built up a wonderful client base, many of whom are still with me.  They have seen me get married, have my children, start my own business and watch my hair go grey!  On the flip side I have seen them do the same. Many of their children have all grown up and I’ve helped them get finance for their own homes too (some of these children I met when they were 5!). 

 

I am extremely proud of where I have come from and the journey my clients and I have taken together.   I love watching my clients grow and build their lives over time, sharing the journey with them is what brings me joy.
