60 Seconds with Tracey Parkin

In March this year, Tracey Parkin clocked over a 10 year milestone being with our office.

It honestly doesn’t seem that long ago when she started as a part-time administrator with just myself in the Miranda office in 2008.

Since that time, Tracey has utilised her experience and motivation to be instrumental in the development of our office culture, work ethic and client driven focus.

For our clients, Tracey has been the person with the happy demeanour on the telephone, or a welcoming chat when you walk into the office.  Given it’s been 10 years, I suppose it’s due time for everybody to get to know her better with 60 seconds of fame!
