In my profession, I like to bring people along on the journey, whether it’s my team members or clients. I know that trust is key when it comes to signing the contract on a new home – and I take great care in building that trust so my clients can have a truly enjoyable and stress-free building experience.
Now I am proud to bring my leadership, passion and knowledge to my very own family of clients, through my partnership with Chris Hardwick as Co-Directors of Chross Homes & Development. With our combined experience and insight in the industry, we’re confident you’ll be happy with your decision to build your first or next home with Chross.
I started my career in the building industry in 2010 as a trainee scheduler at one of Perth’s largest project builders. I had very little experience behind me, other than a way with numbers – but seeing how I could turn those numbers into homes for people and families inspired the career path I’ve been on ever since.
After being promoted to Scheduling Manager, I became an Estimator, before progressing to Estimating & Scheduling Manager. In my 8 years with the company I had the opportunity to lead highly experienced teams, keeping our clients happy by keeping jobs progressing as promised, or better.
My next career move came with a smaller builder in 2018, where I was hired as the sole Estimator/Scheduler and tasked with building their estimating system from scratch. I had the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects, from custom built homes to large developments, and major renovation projects.
In my time at the company we won numerous state and national HIA awards, including professional small builder of the year in WA three times in a row and for Australia twice in a row. Being part of a smaller team made these successes even more enjoyable, and it was hugely satisfying to lead and work with people with diverse skills that we could optimise to deliver exceptional results. During this time I also completed my Diploma in Building & Construction; a rewarding accomplishment to consolidate my years of hands-on experience.
I also love spending time outdoors with my young family, love watching and playing sports, and am a huge soccer and basketball fan. If I can have a beer during any of those activities that’s a bonus!
