I started my working life as a professional rugby player, playing for 10 years (2009-2019) both in Australia and internationally. During the course of my professional rugby career I completed my tertiary education via correspondence. I completed a Bachelor of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Sydney in 2012 followed by a Masters of Science in Project Management from Curtin University in 2021. The last few years of my rugby career I lived in France with my young family. It was a great experience living in a small French town and learning a different culture and language and getting to travel extensively throughout Europe.
In 2019 I retired from rugby and moved back to Sydney with my family and dog. Having a builder as a father I was always interested in the construction industry and so commenced a full-time role in project management with a private construction company. I worked on large scale projects in the fit-out and refurbishment sector.
Since May 2020, I have been working at Addison Home Care as a Business Manager. Due to our ageing population, the pandemic, and the shift in preference for tailored care at home versus nursing home care, our small business has been extremely busy. My role involves managing and overseeing the compliance, risk management and governance of the business which is very rigid in the health industry. We have just become an approved NDIS provider in recent months. AHC is also in the process of becoming a public funded aged care provider which we hope to attain in the next financial year. Another objective for 2022 is to expand AHC’s operations to the Southern Highlands region. It is an exciting opportunity for the business to branch out from the traditional headquarters of Sydney and Brisbane.
I am passionate about working in small business, offering tailored and personal care opportunities, staying true to our core values and helping others. Outside of AHC I am involved in coaching rugby teams, spending time with my young family and keen to develop my golfing and cycling as I begin to make the transition down to the Southern Highlands.
