Who am I? Just your average digital marketer with a passion for finance
85% of Australian women under 35 don’t understand fundamental investment concepts*. I’d like to change that.
I’m The Money Marketer. After forcibly becoming a financial planner for those around me, I have decided to make the move to the digital space. This was motivated by my passion for finance, but also because I am not in a position to lose anymore friends to my 45 minute finance rants. I have four at best, ah the joys of being an adult.
I currently work as a marketer in Melbourne, with a strong focus on the digital side. Although I did a minor in finance at uni, I am in no way a professional and my advice is to be a guide to stimulate discussion rather than actionable steps for your financial health.
I believe that there is a real lack of financial education in the education system which I find concerning. I’d love to use this tool as a mechanism to help educate and teach young people basic financial concepts, as well as sharing my stories and experience.
Other than finance and marketing, I am a wildy passionate foodie that loves to explore the Melbourne food scene. As a grandma-at-heart, I love everything that your Nan loves from loose leaf tea, knitting and daytime naps. It is important to take time out for yourself, therefore I am a big self-care person. I am committed to a regular yoga and mediation practice, although I am admittedly not very good at either.
