​​A highly experienced, driven and passionate recruitment specialist,  I have worked in the recruitment industry for over 20 years and have gained experience in the industry across large Global and Boutique firms as well as in-house both in Melbourne and Perth.  I have been privileged to work across various sectors and I have specialised in Accounting & Finance, Business Support, HR, Marketing, Procurement, and Account Management/Sales. I have recruited across the permanent, temporary, and contract space.

I commenced my recruitment career straight after university, with my first role being with a Federal Government agency, which saw me managing large-scale recruitment projects within the retail industry. As my passion for recruitment intensified, I moved into agency recruitment where I was trusted in managing the end-to-end recruitment process across Business Support, Accounting & Finance, and generalist roles within SME’s, large corporations, Government, Accounting, and Legal firms. I have successfully coached, mentored, and led teams across my roles as Senior Consultant, Manager, and Talent Acquisition Lead. My recruitment experience has also allowed me the opportunity to sit on panel interviews within Large Corporates, State and Federal Government for Senior Leadership and Executive roles.

My success is attributed to my strong ability in understanding my client and candidate needs to find the best fit for the company and the individual as well as my solid strategic sourcing skills. I pride myself on forging excellent and long-standing relationships. My high-level experience in diverse stakeholder management and engagement within organisations has contributed to my extensive career within recruitment. I have a genuine and strong focus on talent attraction and retention and providing an exceptional service to the partnerships I build.

 When I'm not at empire group, you'll find me....spending quality time with my family and friends, eating and drinking, and exploring new restaurants and cafes. I love taking long walks, creating connections and shopping!
