About me…

After moving to Australia in 1999, I’ve worked in many industries – from small to large businesses in a variety of administration based roles.

I found my initial HR focus in a role just before having my family. My passion for HR was cemented when I returned from a 2 year stay back in England and found myself in an HR Coordinator position in the retail industry.

I joined the Strawberry Seed Team in March 2019, the only team member based in Melbourne. Bringing a mix of academic and practical HR experience with a Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioural Science, Certificate IV in HR and Certificate in Recruitment, I most recently qualified as a Mental Health First Aid Instructor.

What I love about my job…

I love developing strong relationships with clients and employees and helping business owners and their teams understand the processes and requirements of the employment relationship.

It’s fascinating to work with different people and their respective industries.  Everyone has a focus on different things, and no two days are ever the same for us.  Working with clients gives us a unique perspective of applying what we know to people to provide them with confidence and sound knowledge that they are doing the right thing!

When I’m not at work…

I have two high school-age children, and I live in the northern suburbs of Melbourne with my husband, kids, and dog. I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends, going to the movies and binge-watching anything good.  I also adore shopping – I live to find a good bargain!! I also love to bake and trying new recipes.
