What do you love most about being a Licensed New Zealand Immigration Adviser?
As a licensed New Zealand immigration adviser I help make a family’s dream of a life in a new country come true. I experienced myself how it is to leave your home country. You pack your bags to realise a dream in a foreign country, and yes, it is stressful but worth it. I love the excitement that comes with it as well as the detailed work that goes into an application. It often requires you to think outside of the box and connects you with likeminded people.
As an adviser you must stay up to date with immigration legislation and other relevant matters. This means i am always in a position to offer quality advice on a person’s immigration options. Research and reading up on immigration cases is something I enjoy. It means best advice for my client's and also keeps building my knowledgeable.
Honest and clear advice on the complete process and visa options.
What do you see as the most important thing that you do for your clients as a Licensed New Zealand Immigration Adviser?
The most important thing that I do for my clients is providing them with honest and clear advice on the complete process and visa options.
I aim to offer a different perspective on a person’s immigration options where I can, as there is often not only one route that is applicable to everybody.
My role is therefore not only to guide the client through the process and facilitate the application, but also to provide a transparent approach and tailored advice from the very first contact.
It's important to understand that immigration is not a straight line you walk along. It sometimes comes with many ups and downs, puts hurdles in your way or requires you to think outside of the box.
I therefore place importance on a friendly and professional client/adviser relationship that is transparent and supportive.
I eliminate expensive mistakes that could have resulted in application delays or even application failure.

When do you get the most job satisfaction?
I get job satisfaction whenever I help my clients with their immigration matters.
In particular where I eliminate expensive mistakes that could have resulted in application delays or even application failure.
Yes, immigration law and policy is complex. My job satisfaction comes in when I know that I was able to help my client in the best way possible.
What's your life motto?
The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters.
Tell us something personal?
Whilst i love what i do it is also important for me to spend quality time away from the professional environment.
I love to travel and to actively engage with animal charity organisations.
