Professional recognition

Professionally accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors when studied with Finance or Marketing.

I studied at Curtin because I had a real passion for property, and Curtin was one of the only universities in Australia that offered a specialised property course. The property industry offers many career paths – to get a taste of analysis, finance, economics, development, valuation, marketing, management and construction put me in good stead to understand the different facets of the industry.

I began my career in a graduate position at PwC and moved to Bankwest’s Property Finance team, and was promoted to Associate Director.
