“It’s brilliant having a career that aligns with my skills … and also what I enjoy doing.
I honestly enjoy my work, the people I work with and knowing that I am helping clients realise their financial goals.”
Shauna fell into financial planning by accident. When her childhood dream of becoming a Sale of the Century champion didn’t quite pan out, she studied to become a school teacher.
But when throwing ideas around with friends, family and careers advisers, she discovered her love of numbers and people were gently nudging her down a different path.
“I’d seen quite a few people have bad experiences with financial planners during the GFC. When I moved into financial planning, I wanted to work with the good guys.”
Shauna loves a good joke and time spent doing the things that she enjoys, trying new things, challenging herself and having adventures.
“I love working at First Financial… there is a real sense of camaraderie between everyone here.”
Shauna hopes to explore the world, attend live music festivals, see lots of musicals and spend time with loved ones.
