My Story

Money or blades of grass were always discussed as a family around the kitchen table, as a child coming from a farming background.

The concept of savings was a regular topic of conversation but equally so was investing, and what was good debt vs bad debt.

After University I deviated from my intended pathway into the financial services industry. During my time working for Financial Services companies, I loved helping advisers create great outcomes for their clients.

With a family of my own being my priority, I realised I wanted to be the person helping other families create the outcomes they are looking for individually.

Now I work with people from all walks of life, helping them with their KiwiSaver, Investments and more!
