How did you find yourself working in property and specifically in your field?
I have lived in an Owners Corporation for over 10 years and it was my first purchase as a home owner. The property I invested in was rife with issues that needed to be sorted out. I became the chairperson and changed the way that the other owners utilised the property – our community is now stronger, we all understand our responsibility to each other and we work together to achieve things that we have prioritised as being important to our group. This work has enabled me to advance into the field of OC Management with a ground floor understanding of what is required to work with others to make magic happen.
Did you grow up in Melbourne? Tell us a little about where you are from and where you live now.
I grew up in Moonee Ponds and left as soon as I could drive. I have spent at least 10% of my adult life living and working over-seas in various countries and half of my life in Sydney but have returned to Moonee Ponds to look after my dementia ridden father.
