The team environment and culture is great because everyone helps each other.

What is the most challenging thing you find working in the insurance industry?
The most challenging aspect of working in the insurance industry is educating clients on the importance of paying their policy premiums on time to ensure they remain continually protected. Economic conditions can impose financial stress on our clients but it’s how we work with our clients by providing affordable solutions which usually overcomes obstacles.

What are your hobbies and interests?
I really enjoy going to my father’s farm to escape the city. I especially love visiting the farm during harvest periods to help pick grapes and make wine as well as pick olives and make olive oil. I also love the beach and catching up with friends for quality food and wine. Going out for dinner for a nice meal is also important to me for relaxation.

Where have you travelled?
I have travelled to the USA (Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Tennessee), Europe (Italy, France, Belgium, Holland, Spain and the United Kingdom), Hong Kong and Bali. I have also lived in Molfetta, Bari for two months. I am also pleased to say that I have travelled to every state and territory in Australia because we have such a beautiful part of the world in our own back yard.

If you could have a month-long holiday anywhere in the world, where would you travel to and why?
If I had the opportunity to travel for a whole month, I would travel along the Amalfi Coast in Italy because it’s a beautiful part of the world and it’s so relaxing.

Do you have any future travel aspirations?
I hope to travel to New York in the USA because during the last three times I’ve been to America, I haven’t made it to NYC.
