In 2007, after achieving top marks on an assignment, Melinda’s lecturer passed her information onto Muirfield. Now a Partner at Muirfield, she has yet to look back. As a recognised specialist in Aged Care and Centrelink advice, Melinda not only loves working with her clients, but also presents regularly to local community groups, aged care facilities, and professional services firms.
A native of the Bellarine Peninsula, Melinda grew up with many pets, including an orphaned lamb named Harry. It’s no surprise then to learn that she originally dreamed of being a veterinarian. However, the appeal of that career died shortly after poor Harry became Sunday roast.
Being the kind and wonderfully quirky individual that she is, we all feel that her chosen career is perfectly suited for her.
Outside of the office, Melinda loves sampling, making, and baking amazing food, traveling at every opportunity, playing with her very spirited puppy, and playing the doting Aunt to her niece and nephew.
