Tressure – Homelessness SA
I am an accountant and accredited SMSF Specialist Adviser(SSA™).
I began my accounting career at Australian Executor Trustees(AET), now part of IOOF. It was at AET that I began my association with Centacare through running our Christmas collection. We collected Christmas presents for children whose parents were clients of Centacare, as well as non-perishable food and personal care items for the Hutt St Centre.
I have lived in Adelaide my whole life. I find Adelaide a wonderful, and user-friendly place to live and especially to raise a family. I live in Adelaide’s inner south with my husband and our two children.
When I’m not being an accountant, you’ll find me helping our children with their homework, cheering on their sporting teams, trying out all the local playgrounds and testing how much fun we can fit in to our time off together.
