From a small country town to one of Australia’s leading experts in financial planning strategies, Louise has worked and studied hard to get to where she is today. Along the way she has taken a particular interest in the issues for people moving into aged care
Aged care advice is an area that has been largely ignored by most of the financial services sector but the increasing complexity and our ageing population means this area can no longer be ignored, and Louise is there helping to train and upskill financial planners, accountants and other advice professionals.
Louise is well known and respected within financial services and is commonly asked to speak at conferences and is often quoted in newspapers, magazines and other media sources. She runs her own businesses – Aged Care Steps and Strategy Steps – and is a Director on the board of an industry association.
Louise is well qualified to be the expert with a Masters in Taxation, a Bachelor of Economics, a Bachelor of Arts (Asian Studies) and a Diploma in Financial Planning. She is a Certified Financial Planner®, an SMSF Specialist Adviser and a Registered Tax Agent.
Work and study don’t leave much time for personal activities, but Louise tries to fit in overseas travel each year. Upcoming plans are to visit Iceland and drive Route 66.
