"I have been with Moores for as long as I have because I continue to learn each and every day from brilliantly minded colleagues. I enjoy clients walking away happy and relieved that their important documentation has been professionally prepared and is ready for when the need arises.
I consider some of my colleagues to be family. I have grown up at Moores. I have been blessed to have had two bouts of maternity leave and have always felt compelled to return to work to continue to grow and learn. I have been supported so much during those times and will be forever grateful."
Whilst I have quite the commute to the office, I am lucky enough to be able to work remotely where and when required whilst fulfilling my other role as mum to two young children. I do enjoy what I do and who I work for, I have quite the work/life balance.
