My goal is to ensure that clients staff and people who are aligned with our business are better off in the future than they are today.

My philosophy of turning the complex into the simple and ensuring clients grow their knowledge and learn and take ownership of the strategies is our business vision.

Over my 20 years in the Financial Advice Industry I have weathered several tumultuous economic events, travelled through many successive governments, and adjusted to significant changes to savings, retirement philosophy’s and legislation.

Living in Tasmania gives my family and I a great platform to take in the events around the, state, country, and broader globe and clearly move forward.

Formally educated through the University of Tasmania and undertaking professional and leadership courses throughout my career, through Deakin University for my Diploma of Financial Planning and obtaining the Certified Financial Planner®, The Tasmanian Leaders Program in community leadership and Graduating from the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

I have worked in the financial planning industry since 2005 and been fortunate enough to have worked with Zach for that entire time. In that time I have completed my Certificate 2 and 3 in Business Administration and started my diploma in Financial Planning.

I love working closely with our clients to help meet their needs while providing outstanding service. I am your main contact for any administrative queries, along with Megan and Matthew.

When I am not working, I love spending time with my beautiful daughters Molly and Elka and my husband Luke, we love trips to the beach, exploring different parks and going away as a family. I love playing sport, training with my Personal Trainer, and spending time with my friends and extended family.

I look forward to working with you and helping you work towards your financial goals, alongside the team at McArthur Financial.

I joined the finance industry in 2004 in a client service role where I found I had a passion for helping clients and being their first point of contact for queries, I moved into paraplanning in 2009 after gaining a great deal of knowledge and completing my diploma of financial services. After taking some time off to raise my children I returned to work and commenced at McArthur Financial in December 2016.

Over the last 2 years I have moved into the role of administration for our insurance clients, I am passionate about working with our clients and assisting with the administration of all of their insurance needs.

I am currently working in the office two days a week and work from home one day a week, when I am not at work I love spending all my time with my family, going to the gym and training with my personal trainer and raising my beautiful children Matilda and Archie.

Strategy & Advice Development

I joined McArthur Financial in 2018 while completing the final year of my business degree at UTAS .

Since joining McArthur Financial I have filled a number of roles. Firstly, in an administration role filling in for Danielle while she was on maternity leave, then moving into a strategy and advice development role helping to assist Zach with advice preparation. While in these two roles, I completed my degree in business and also finished my graduate diploma of financial advising.

I am now moving into being a financial adviser outright, having completed the new requirements for financial advisers post the royal commission. I am looking forward to working with new and existing clients to assist in achieving their financial goals.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my partner, playing football and going to the gym.
