Joining the Flor-Hanly Team in July 2023, I am enjoying being part of a great group of people who, together, bring the skillset and support network to truly care for our clients.

Born in Mt Isa and moving to Mackay during my schooling years, I grew up with a family that had various types of small businesses over the years, as well as an exposure to mining industries, so understood early some of the challenges that come with running your own business.

 I studied Accounting in high school, went on to achieve both a Bachelor of Accounting and Bachelor of Financial Planning at CQUniversity here in Mackay, and am now a Certified Practising Accountant and member of CPA Australia.

Looking after clients is not just numbers.  I’ve enjoyed the relationships I’ve built over the years and will always aim to help clients in whatever way we can as their trusted advisor.

Joining Flor-Hanly has opened up unexpected opportunities. Soon after coming onboard, I was offered the opportunity to help train our team in the Philippines. One of Flor-Hanly's core values is to 'embrace opportunities' so I decided to take this to grab this opportunity with both hands.  

This trip showed me how and why Flor-Hanly has chosen to employ a team internationally, as well as continuing to hire great people throughout Australia. I have also seen how vastly different Flor-Hanly's approach is to that of other firms and am enjoying being part of it.
