I was working in Australia and England in Insurance (both private and commercial) for the 14 years before I moved to Mount Gambier and joined Eckermanns. I also had a stint in India providing training to off shore staff which was really interesting.
I didn’t know what a conveyancer did when I first applied to Eckermanns in 2013 but I certainly do now and it was a nice change to move to a role that was engaging directly with clients rather than being focused on processing and the backend.
I’m passionate about attention to detail which aligns perfectly with my role as a client manager especially when checking documents and reading contracts – plus I understand the importance of confidentiality in the sort of work that we do. I enjoy the diversity of my job and problem solving when there is an issue to overcome – and usually there is!
Outside of work I am an active member of the State Emergency Service (SES) and enjoy being able to assist the community in moments of need. My husband and I have recently built our own home, so I am familiar with the complexities of buying land and building. I have dabbled in limestone carving in the past and being in Mount Gambier, there’s a bit of limestone around! I hope to take that up again soon.
What Eckermanns values mean to me
Working through a situation to provide the best outcome for all concerned. Being open to new ideas and embracing change.
Providing support for others and asking for help when required. Giving time to others to hear and understand them, trying not to put my own needs first.
Honest communication and transparency.
