What’s your story?
I was born and raised in Sydney, however spent a great deal of my childhood on my father’s family farm at Mudgee. When I finished school, I studied Agricultural Economics at Sydney University before starting with NAB in the grad program.
I have been lucky enough to work in various regions across Victoria in my short time at the bank. NAB provides great opportunities for those who are willing to be outside of their comfort zone and try new things. Moving around and experiencing different regions and industries and has taught me so much, and I’m so glad that I had these opportunities. It has also recently provided me the opportunity to move back home closer to family and friends and continue to work and learn in the agricultural sector.
How have you made a difference?
I always try to put myself in our customers shoes and understand things from their perspective. I believe communication is the key to good relationships, and so I always try and keep this front of mind and be available for our customers. I’ve found it extremely satisfying to see customers that I have developed a relationship with and supported, achieve their goals.
What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about spending time with my family and friends. I love getting out and about and playing and supporting almost all sports. I love to travel and visit new places. I really am passionate about the agricultural sector, there are so many great opportunities for Australia in the future in this sector and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.
