Administration Super Heroes, in no particular order…
Tam(ra) joined the team late 2019 as broker assistant to both Tameeka and Carrie. She has over 15 years of customer service experience and delights in being a part of helping our clients achieve their property dreams. In her spare time (apart from growing a tiny human) she loves adventuring around our beautiful state with her hubby and fur babies.
Sophie comes to Up after 18 years with Westpac mainly working as a Business Analyst in the new projects space. Sophie is looking forward to moving into a more personal work environment where she will be able to give Carrie and Tameeka’s clients individual attention and personalised service. Outside of work Sophie is the mother to two beautiful kids who keep her incredibly busy with all types of sports and activities. Weekends are either spent running to different sporting activities or spending time down the east coast with her fishing mad hubby and water loving kids.
Keisha joined the Up team in 2020, after previously having worked at Westpac for 10 years, and then buying a bakery! After 6 years of bakery life, she was missing working in finance and decided to move on from the world of bread, and make her return to the finance industry with our very lucky team! Now she misses bread… kidding! Outside of work, Keisha is a keen marathon runner (I know, eeek) and enjoys hiking in the mountains, especially in Winter, when she says it’s best as you barely see a soul for days! She also loves travelling around the world when she can, and spending time with her partner, step-kids and two dogs.
Ella is not just the beautiful face in the mural on the side of our building, although that is pretty cool, she is also the youngest person on our team, and an absolute gun… at everything! Ella joined the Up Loans team mid 2020, right in the middle of the years craziness, as an administrative assistant to Kirsty. With years of customer service experience under her belt, Ella is the first voice you hear when you call us, and she loves helping our clients with all their property needs – she especially loves seeing the excitement of first home buyers, as she is hoping to be one herself this year! Ella likes to travel her home state camping and hiking (even though she has a terrible fear of heights) and we’ve heard that Ella and her partner Elliott may or may not have hiked Cradle Mountain around 10 times one year…!
Sallys role is also to help get our files from approval to settlement as quickly and as smoothly as possible. She has 25 years of banking experience, from branch banking through to coaching and supporting managers and teams. Her passion is helping others and finds nothing more rewarding than making a positive difference to our clients. Her other (slightly more exotic) passion is Scuba Diving, particularly scuba diving with the elusive Leafy Sea Dragon!
Steph is the ‘Grandma’ of the Up Loans team (her words not ours we promise) and has been in banking for over 32 years. She has seen every change, and experienced all of the highs and lows in lending since the 1980’s. With Steph, our customers always come first with a strong focus for a seamless transition to settlement.
Karl’s sunny disposition and eager attitude make him the perfect lead loan processor on our team. His job is to be the details ninja and make sure that our submissions are going into the bank with the best possible chance of approval! In his spare time Karl enjoys travelling to the beach and spending time with family & friends.
Dave joined the Up Loans team mid 2018, and his attention to detail and solution focused attitude have meant he has fast become an integral part of our loan processing team. In his spare time Dave enjoys spending time with his pets and reading.
