I've run an eCommerce business for 6 years and have worked as an Actuarial Analyst for 4 years. I'm currently a Product Owner in one of the Australia's leading providers of wealth management technology.
To date in my career, I have developed a strong expertise in the Finance and IT industries and have founded a successful online business.
Alongside my eCommerce business and full-time work I am studying to become a qualified actuary, with a goal to become a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries of Australia.
Throughout my work within the financial services industry I have developed an affinity for financial planning and the software that drives the industry forward. To further reinforce my skills in the financial advice industry I completed a diploma of financial planning in 2012.
In 2007 I combined my business acumen and programming skills to start a successful eCommerce website to sell Car Audio products in Australia. The key drivers that enabled this were my ambition and determination, as well as my eagerness to grasp new skills.
In 2009 I took a great interest in websites, and subsequently learnt web development through online courses, videos and books. Since then, I have constantly been refining my programming knowledge and learning new web programming languages.
My programming skills were utilised in my role at Talent 100 to develop internal management systems and integration with Moodle.
To further the success of my eCommerce website, I coordinated the growth of the website and the implementation of online marketing campaigns and SEO strategies. Leading a small team of web developers, designers and marketing analysts, I oversaw the development and expansion of the business.
Managing the eCommerce website  has allowed me to apply my business acumen and has resulted in a significant growth in sales.
I applied my actuarial skills and IT knowledge to improve the financial modelling software at IRESS. Working closely with numerous internal and external stakeholders, I looked after a suite of financial models and calculators. 
I've been coordinating the launch of our upcoming scaled advice platform, XPLAN Prime. I manage the design and requirements for the product, and I work closely with key internal and external stakeholders to create and convey the vision of the product.
I'm passionate about delivering a market-leading advice platform, to assist Australians who are seeking financial advice.
