Where are you working now and in what role?

I am the Owner and Head Structural Landscaper of GNK Landscapes.

What do you love about your job?

Every day is different and not repetitive. I am fortunate enough to love my job and get to meet some really great clients along the way.

Did anyone at VHS inspire you to follow your chosen career path?

Mr Russel Firth (2004 Year Adviser) was a positive role model throughout Year 12.

Did you have many challenges to get to where you are now?

A lot! I was working two jobs 60-70 hours a week for many years after leaving school until I decided to start my own landscape business. I was working nights, studying my Cert III in Structural Landscaping, running a new business and also supporting a very young family. Life was extremely challenging and still is at times, but I’m glad I never gave up…. Although there was plenty of times I wanted to!

Do you have any advice for our current students?

Work is sometimes not glamours and you have to put in long hours, forgo weekends and study into the night but hard work certainly pays off!
