Drawing on nearly 20 years’ experience in the financial services sector, I lecture in Investments and Financial Services at the University of New England (UNE) and work with businesses to enhance the way they get things done. As subject coordinator for UNE, I recently developed the first Financial Services Simulator in Australia, and post-graduate subject offering students practical, real-world experience.

I’ve also worked with law firms, financial service providers, accountants and bookkeepers helping them streamline business operations and improve client experience.
