Marie was born in Ghana and raised in Nigeria until she was 13 years old.
Beginning her studies in Thailand and then arriving in Australia in January 2013, Marie has achieved a fantastic array of academic accolades – Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (Assumption University of Thailand), Master of Commerce in International Business & Logistics (RMIT University), Master of Professional Accounting (Holmes Institute), Chartered Accountant (Qualified Member) – Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand. Wow!
Marie has worked in public practice and tax accounting for over 5 years and has also worked as a Consular Officer at the Royal Thai Consulate-General in Melbourne.
Migration is an area that is very close to her heart and has been on her own personal journey, becoming a permanent resident in February 2023 after 10 years of living in Melbourne. Working within the migration sector is very rewarding for Marie as she has the opportunity to get to know the people behind the applications and be a part of their migration journey to Australia or New Zealand.
In her spare time, Marie keeps herself very busy and has a very wide range of interests including football (soccer – she’s a big, big fan!), performing and singing jazz music, wedding photography (freelancing as a photographer in the summer months), tarot reading and spirituality.
