I hold a Degree in Urban and Regional Planning and a Diploma in Business Management.

Prior to setting up Vision Town Planning, I worked as both a statutory and strategic town planner in a variety of Senior, Team Leader and Management planning positions for various Local Governments in Sydney (Baulkham Hills & Auburn) and along the NSW North Coast (Coffs Harbour, Ballina, Lismore and Byron Bay). I am a Certified Practicing Planner (CPP) and NSW Northern Branch Committee Member of the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA).

Certified Practising Planners are recognised by employers, other professionals, governments and the community as leading planning professionals who have meet stringent planning experience and undertake continued professional development.
