By now, you have probably noticed that I don’t fit into the typical stereotype of a project manager or someone who owns a project management company. Because I’m not an older male with a background as a builder, some people do a double-take when I explain my role in the property industry. But I have never let that stop me.
How did I get into this profession and become sought after as a property developer, project manager and property investment consultant? I was largely inspired by my father.
A structural engineer and property developer with a strong entrepreneurial streak, my father encouraged me to stay outside my comfort zone and see what I could achieve. Thanks to him, I have always had a resolve to chase my passions, become educated and put my skills to the test in the real world. This included spending some of the early years of my career working for his firm, PSV Consulting Engineers.
Sadly, Dad passed away when I was 28. Instead of holding me back, the shock of his passing motivated me to build a secure financial future for myself and my family. As I have worked to achieve my own dreams, I have found the real rewards come from being able to use everything I learn to help others.
