Bio

I commenced working in an undergraduate accounting role working across a range of industries as an auditor gaining a broad business experience. During this time I completed my degree and CPA.

Transitioning into management consulting I developed a taste for the world of IT and returned to study completing a Graduate Diploma in Information Technology. This also saw me move working in private practice accounting firms to law firms. Initially consulting to law firms as part of external software implementation teams. I was part of process review and software development teams as well as providing database administration support.

Moving into an internal role in a law firm brought a unique perspective, having worked on both sides of the consulting relationship. Returning to a finance based role I now head up a dynamic team of professionals at Piper Alderman who service a national internal client base across SA, NSW, QLD and VIC. My IT related experience has allowed for an excellent understanding of both the financial and technological requirements of the business. I have lead teams developing process improvements and efficiency gains across the firm. I'm also involved in the key management team for this growing national law firm.

In my role a Director of ALPMA I have been heavily involved in the systems upgrades that have enabled ALPMA to become a truly virtual organisation with its critical business systems now functioning in a fully cloud based environment.
