Chartered Accountant & Managing Partner
Aspire Accountants and Advisors

After completing an accounting degree at the Queensland University of Technology in 1988, I completed my internship in a graduate position with Grant Thornton LLP. This was followed by 10 years as Senior Taxation Manager at Whitehill’s Business Advisers and Chartered Accountants in Brisbane’s CBD.  In 1998 a year after my first child was born, I decided to start up my own firm.

With my passion for customer service I was able to  rapidly  build up an accountancy and taxation practice offering taxation services, including  all types of business returns, self-managed superannuation funds, business advice and planning, tax effective structuring and business improvement strategies.

While I always worked closely with clients, my foresight into the coaching industry lead the way for the business to offer a coaching and mentoring  service where clients are coached to work on their business and not in it. I tailor programs specifically designed to assist owners of small to medium enterprises grow their business and create more rewarding lifestyles.

It allows business owners to critically look at all aspects of their business to shape, remodel, and work on the core strengths of the business. Key strategies put in place will see the business grow and develop to its full potential and realise the vision of the business owner.

I admit I am a bit of a workaholic, however in my spare time, I enjoy travel, movies, parkrun, fitness bootcamps, spending time with family and friends.
