Current Student - Master of Applied Finance
After finishing school I completed a Bachelor of Commerce at Curtin University in WA. The degree took around six years to complete due to a mid-degree stint in the workforce, primarily in hospitality. Thankfully, time spent serving tables and washing dishes resulted in me returning to university a more dedicated and disciplined student. Following university I travelled extensively and worked in a variety of jobs, becoming a jack of all, but a ‘master’ of none! I then joined MLC in 2007 which was a fantastic time to be in financial services, but was followed quickly by the GFC. So I have experienced both the highs and lows of this industry in a relatively short period. I moved to Sydney in 2010 to work in MLC’s in-house investment research team and since then have completed a Diploma of Financial Services and begun my Masters at Macquarie. I recently transferred to our Sales team into a role as Business Development Manager where I work closely with financial planners. I plan to finish my Masters in 2014.
