What do you enjoy the most, working in the field of construction & development?
Working for Coast to Country Building Approvals. I love what I do and love who I work with. I also really enjoy working with external peers. In a small town, you get to know all the architects, builders, council workers, etc. We all work hard and love a challenge. I relish on challenges, and every day we come across new challenges.
Where do you see life in the next 5 years, what possibilities are ahead of you?
There are always endless possibilities. I have personal items that I would like to tick off my bucket list. But for the future of my career, I would like to see myself holding a registration as a Building Surveyor.
