Advisers

Tim H.S

Tim van Doore – Principal

B Bus (Acc), DipFS, C. Dec

I’ve always been someone who enjoys pulling things apart and making them better in some way. I find this fun and interesting and am a big believer in continual improvement. I believe there is a best way of having something done, not just a better way.

Conrad Voss – General Manager

B Com, Adv Dip FP, DipFS (FP), DipFS (Super)

Fairness is my number one value.  I think this emanated from watching people out to dinner.  I’d observe one individual order an entrée, main, dessert and 4 cocktails whilst the other had an entree and a glass of water.  When it came time to pay, the person that ate their way through the menu kindly offered to split the bill.

Using this principle of fairness in a business sense, I have a passion for seeing value delivered to clients.   I am a firm believer in ‘you get what you pay for’ and ‘if it seems too good to be true, it probably is’.

Glassop, Janis

Janis Glassop – Financial Adviser & Insurance Specialist

Dip FS

As a very proud mother with 2 beautiful daughters who were born with a degenerative genetic condition, I spent a lot of time in their younger days fighting for their rights and believing that everyone has the right to a good education, care and a safe and loving environment.

Lachlan Money – Financial Adviser

B Com (FP), Dip ML, JP (QUAL)

I’ll admit it, I’m a people pleaser. I like making people feel good.

While I would 100% agree this has lead me to do a lot of things I wouldn’t have otherwise done, I can honestly say without a doubt I am better off because of it. I have found myself learning instruments I wouldn’t have otherwise learnt, winning a bronze medal in lawn bowls of all things, competing in the Tough Mudder challenge and performing on stage in front of hundreds of people.

Drew H.S

Drew Bacon – Financial Adviser

Dip (FP), Cert IV ML

I wish I could say something classy and inspirational to you here, but the reality is that I do what I do for four simple reasons. Lili-Grace, Allegra, Oscar and Teddy, my amazing kids. They are my why, my reason and my everything.  I love that I get to help people change their lives for the better every day.

Stuart

Stuart Long – Financial Adviser

A little about me… I like to travel, socialise, eat out and drink… usual stuff I know, but this is why I came to Australia and settled on the Sunshine Coast. In 2008 I packed a bag, took twelve months out from my accounting job in Manchester and went to see some of the world. As you all know Australia is a fantastic place, and I feel privileged to live here, in this beautiful environment with my partner and two energetic kids!

Audra Beerling – Financial Adviser

I’ve been an adviser for many years now and my clients become like family. I know it sounds very cliché, but I do what I do because I love helping people. I’m there with them during the good times and standing beside them during the more difficult times in their lives. 

Candy – H.S

Candice van Doore – Administrator

Growing up my mum would say to me most days “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”.  I live my life by this statement and aspire to be kind to others on a daily basis. We live in a world full of unkind words and actions. It seems every time you turn on the news or check Twitter there has been some awful tragedy or unpleasant encounter. Sometimes that negative noise can drown out all the good in our beautiful world. A smile, a thank you, a or even a wave to someone letting you merge on the highway can make such a difference.

Tegan

Tegan Pitt – Paraplanner

I am a very adventurous person. I love to travel and explore new places. My love for adventure came from my upbringing on a farm in Bundaberg. I would get home from school, jump on my quadbike and ride around until I had to be home before dark. My weekends were always filled with animals, dirt and adventure.

Brooke

Brooke Walters – Paraplanner

Growing up in a country town in NSW, I have always loved being outdoors and enjoying what this earth has to offer. This is a large part of the reason I moved to Queensland. I can have the best of both worlds, the ocean and the mountains. Weekends are for hiking, the water, sport and my puppy

 Hayley Pereira– Paraplanner Implementor

Being a quietly confident person, I’m not afraid to speak my mind.  I’m a perfectionist thus will do my utmost to exceed expectations and help anyone if I can.  I like honesty, integrity and an appreciation for humility from those around me.  I love where I live, coffee and red wine.

Julia

Julia Collings – Administration

I come from a background of health modalities and so have become a passionate advocate of holistic living and helping people to find ways to improve their health in all areas of their lives.

Alana

Alana Hodgins – Web and Marketing Manager

I started out many years ago as a Visual Artist, but found myself drawn into the realm of multimedia, once I discovered the immediacy and responsiveness of the online world. I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Design, experiencing the world of video production, 3D animation and web design and development. I was drawn to the web and it’s a love that keeps growing.
