I am a Certified Practicing Accountant (CPA) with more than 20 years’ experience across various towns in Queensland. I’m originally from Biloela, and I worked in Brisbane, Emerald and Mackay before settling in Rockhampton in the late nineties – working for Andrew Tickner Accountants. When that firm merged with the FTA Accountants Group in 2010, I transferred to the Maroochydore office. I’ve have been a part of the Super Professionals team ever since and working for FTA has been one of the most refreshing professional experiences I’ve ever had.

We’re very client focused here at FTA. We’ll always do our best and go the extra mile to make sure that we’re doing all we can for the people we work for. It’s a great environment to be a part of and a great ethos to go by. Working in the Australian Superannuation industry means working within a constantly shifting system of rules and regulations. The role provides me with many challenges, and that gives me much enjoyment. I relish making a difference to the lives of clients through Super, and I firmly believe that if you do something you love, you will excel at it!

Working at FTA means working with a diverse selection of companies and people. Our aim is always to be the best we can be for our clients, and the team here at FTA Accountants enables us to deliver an extremely high standard and be proud of our work.

I love the variety. It’s all about helping hard-working people from many different industries to maximise the rewards they get for all of their hard efforts. I don’t think I could work for a firm that didn’t do its level best, and that’s why I’ve been with FTA for so long. I consider FTA Accountants to be an innovative and progressive advisory group, and I’m excited every day to be part of the team. We all work together toward the same thing – and that’s a great place to be plying my profession.

 

Outside of work I am a family woman, and of course, a Mum. My husband and our three daughters also have the same love of sport, we like nothing more than spending time together and our weekends are generally busy, filled with various commitments revolving around netball, dancing, and rugby.

I’m a fanatical rugby fan, and I’m pretty much the same with cricket! I have to confess that I’m known as the sports nut of the FTA team. I take a keen interest in both sports, at all times. Rugby and cricket may just be the only two subjects I know just as much about as Super!
