Do you have a favourite quote?

Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, how you leave others feeling after an interaction becomes your trademark.

Who inspires you, and why?

My leader Hayley inspires me. She has created a very welcoming and motivating work environment where she encourages us to reach our highest potential. She manages her own business where she nurtures and empowers her staff and having a great name in the industry means that we are never short of leads. I am following her lead by being reliable, informative and kind in everything I do to create a reputation similar to hers. People always come before profit and those ethics are threaded through all the recommendations we make to our clients.

What growth have you experienced being in Venus?

I was a very shy public speaker before I joined Venus. Since joining just over a year ago I have become very confident to the point where I have been asked to speak in front of groups in business circles and have been able to say yes to these invitations with confidence. I have a very supportive  Venus team and i have received referrals from the team.

Women are redefining success and growing businesses on their terms: What does success look like to you?

Success is enjoying what you do, learning ever day, having happy clients and having a good work life balance.

What’s your favourite pastime when you are not working?

Exercise, I love to run and train. Especially when my kids join in.
