Born and raised in Ireland, I met my Australian husband, Brad, in Ireland. During a family vacation to Apollo Bay in 2012, we simply fell in love with the beauty of the location. The area offered us an opportunity to build an authentic life close to nature and create for our two boys the experiences I had enjoyed growing up on a farm in rural Ireland. We began the process of finding a home along this stunning coastline and in 2015 were delighted to finally be able to make the permanent move and become part of this welcoming community.

​Career-wise, I have worked in many business sectors in London, Dublin and Melbourne. Moving to Apollo Bay allowed me to get involved in the Real Estate industry - something that has always interested me. I worked for Great Ocean Properties for 2 years after which I established a holiday rental business, Apollo Bay Breaks in 2017.

​I believe my personal journey as an individual who relocated to this area, as well as my relevant experience working in the property sector along the Great Ocean Road, gives me a unique insight into what truly matters to clients who are either selling or buying property.

For a small coastal community, there is a variety of things to do, my personal favorite being art classes, yoga and Qigong, but there is so much more going on behind the scenes.

I bring all my core values of integrity, professionalism, good humour and enthusiasm to every job I undertake.

I was born in Melbourne – the baby of 9 children. Following 10 years of family holidays at our beach shack at Skenes Creek, my parents decided to pack up our menagerie and in 1980 made the sea change. Dad established his construction business, Mum entrenched herself in the local CWA whilst I completed my last 4 years of schooling and eagerly got involved in the local sporting clubs ‘Go Bayers’!

Although my education and career took me to many States across Australia - working primarily in the areas of marketing and tourism – I knew instinctively that when it came to putting down roots, I wanted to return to Apollo Bay.

In 2010, my family of three boys and I returned to the place that I believe has all the ingredients to create a quality life: great personal freedom, wide open spaces, a cosmopolitan influence brought by a diversity of travellers and a wonderful community.

In my 20+ years of working in Apollo Bay as the regional tourism manager, marketer for holiday accommodation, real estate agent and manager of the one of the regions biggest tourist attractions I know just what people are looking for in our region.

I’ve bought, sold, relocated, sub-divided, remodelled and built homes for myself. This first-hand experience as well as decades of knowledge of the local areas, gives me a unique insight into what truly matters to clients who are either selling or buying property.
