With a multi skilled background in finance, administration and property I began the evolution of The Knight Alliance in 1995.
This is a challenging industry and it is important that The Knight Alliance remains current in all aspects of our service delivery.
We foster a culture at The Knight Alliance which values and supports our Staff which is a vital prerequisite to ensuring that we can deliver a service confidently, knowledgably, effectively.
I’m parochially Melbourne and enjoy and consume its diversity.
Apart from my personal relationships I like nothing better than exercising my two border collies at Elizabeth Cove, Phillip Island.

Born and bred in Melbourne. After completing my secondary education at Melbourne Boys High I took on a couple of university courses before taking a year off to work and travel throughout Europe.
On my return from Europe I chose to follow in my parent’s footsteps and commenced working at The Knight Alliance in an administrative support role.
I soon progressed and for the past 4 years or so I have been an Owners Corporation Manager, managing a number of large scale apartment buildings.
I am excited for the future of The Knight Alliance and am helping to further develop The Knight Alliance’s standing in the Owners Corporation industry by developing my own skills in business development and marketing.
Outside of work I enjoy heading to Melbourne’s many sporting events, modern design and taking weekend road trips away with friends to explore provincial Victoria and beyond.

Having a background in health and management I have been able to use my experience and skills to develop strong administrative systems, promote staff and team development and oversee the general running of the TKA office.
I enjoy working with people, finding solutions to issues and improving systems.
In my spare time I like to read, dragon boat, garden and relax with a nice glass of wine.

I have over 13 years’ experience within the property industry, 10 of which as a Body Corporate Manager/Community Manager/Owners Corporation Manager. I joined the Knight Alliance in early 2014 after returning from working in the Middle East where I was responsible for developing and establishing Owners Corporations in the Sultanate of Oman which included a significant community educational role.

My Owners Corporation experience encompasses working in Queensland, Victoria and the Middle East which allows me to bring a variety of approaches to solving problematic situations. In addition I have extensive experience in dealing with Facilities Management matters and providing cost effective solutions to Committees.

I have experience in dealing with clients from a multitude of backgrounds which allows me to efficiently evaluate the client’s needs and provide a swift response.

Outside of work I enjoy photography and travelling to remote regions of the world and experiencing different cultures.

I have 5 1/2 years’ experience as an Owners Corporation Manager following on from a varied background of running my own Business Consulting Company and prior to that as a Team Manager in one of Australia’s large telecommunications companies where I worked for 8 1/2 years. I have also run my own Milk Bar/ Convenience/Take Away store and done professional cleaning amongst other things.I have always been known as a go to or fix it person and it has been a natural progression to move into the Owners Corporation field. I am pretty passionate about a lot of things and am used to managing a diverse group of people which has proved very useful when dealing with the different personalities that make up an Owners Corporation. I enjoy the diversity and unpredictability of being an OC Manager and while I have only been at the Knight Alliance since June 2014, I appreciate the support, opportunities and sense of being part of a close team The Knight Alliance has given me.I have a grown up family including grandchildren and outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, cooking, gardening, entertaining, flower arranging, reading, learning new things and country adventures.

I have been working at The Knight Alliance for over three years. Previous to The Knight, I worked in Canada as a Registered Condominium Manager for 4 years. Prior to becoming a Registered Condominium Manager, I was the President of a self- managed condominium for over 10 years. A condominium is the Canadian equivalent to Owners Corporation. My background is Social Service Worker and I have a strong interest in Community Development. Outside of work I enjoy gardening, riding my motorbike and DIY projects. I love Australia and feel that I am very fortunate that life has sent me in this direction. The Knight Alliance is a great place to work. My co-workers have been very supportive in my transition from managing condominiums to managing Owners Corporations.

As a relative newcomer to The Knight Alliance (and to Melbourne) I have been busy getting to know the people, places and properties.
In my role at the Knight Alliance as an OC Managers Assistant, I have a keen enthusiasm for Administration systems and pride myself on attention to detail, customer service, listening to and understanding client concerns, and problem solving.
My first Body Corporate Management role was as a receptionist in Queensland in 2000. Since then I have worked in the property industry both in Australia (Queensland & NSW and now Victoria) and as a Rental and Property Manager in the UK.
I’m currently undertaking my Cert IV in Property Operations.
Outside of work I enjoy Singing A’Capella, playing the Ukulele, spending time with my dogs and discovering the culinary delights, interesting places and coffee(!!) that Melbourne has to offer!

Born into a real estate family and with property in my blood and experience to boot I can pursue my passion.
I began my real estate career with a property valuation specialist, taking the path into property management, then Owners Corporation.
Today, as an OC Manager, I draw upon my knowledge from being a property manager for more than eight years. This knowledge and expertise extends beyond the everyday to include an indepth understanding that comes with ‘lifetime’ of practical education.
My commitment to owners corporation management extends well beyond family connections. I have an approachable nature, I’m enthusiastic and have a “can do” attitude all of which are ideal attributes for a career in Owners Corporation management.
Always willing to go the extra mile, I have become known for my highly organised approach and detail-oriented processes.
Away from work, my life is still property focused and as a property investor myself, I personally understand the concerns and needs of owners and residents.
