I’ve been with inspire for 2 years as a Client Services Coordinator. Being in this role has been truly life changing for me. My internal dialogue when I started was “I’ve finally found a place where I feel like I belong”. It’s also the first time in my career that I’ve felt like I’ve actually grown.
I’m grateful to have the opportunity to help the people around me, and being able to offer pro-active support to make their lives easier is so gratifying. Being able to be a pillar of support and assistance for the team is everything to me.
OUTSIDE OF INSPIRE
Outside of Inspire, my life has revolved around my precious 3 kids. I have 2 boys, Nick and Mitchell, and my beautiful daughter, Emily. Last but definitely not least of our family is our little baby Maltese Shitzu, Gizmo. Our family is everything to me.
Every opportunity we get, we love to go camping and spend quality time with each other. During warmer months, we are crazy about the beach and long for spontaneous day trips.
What is your favourite thing about working at Inspire?
I’d have to say the culture. The fact that the culture is so accepting of everyone is wondrous. Everyone can be themselves, feel confident in their own skin, and appreciated for the effort we put in. We’re here to help people and have fun while doing it – I think it’s perfect.
How did you get interested in client services?
I had entered the industry by chance. Initially I didn’t like it, given the huge change of scenery, and I had always felt like it was menial work and I wasn’t going anywhere. Only at Inspire have I felt fulfilled in the work that I do.
At the time I was at another accounting firm and spontaneously got referred to the position by one of our Senior Accountants that I’d previously worked with and fell in love with Inspire.
What is one of the biggest impacts you’ve made?
The biggest impact I feel is the difference I’ve created with the administration side of things. I’ve been able to get organisational systems implemented that resulted in productivity and improved client experiences which has lessened the load for our Accountants.
What are some books, audio books, podcasts you recommend?
In all honesty, I don’t have a favourite book but I can happily say that I’m currently taking on trying to rediscover my passion for reading.
Which Sustainable Development Goal(s) do you choose and why?
Peace, Justice and strong institutions. I guess justice has always been a big thing for me having seen so much injustice in modern day systems. It would also be really pleasant if true peace could be a reality.
