Donna Laverick – Practice Manager

How did you come to join Acquira?

Like Reine, I also worked at NAB. I was in Financial Planning for 12 years, eventually establishing and leading a remote support team for Queensland. I was twice voted Queensland Financial Planning Best Employee (in a support role) and was also named NAB’s top employee for Queensland. When Reine left to start his own business, I was keen to join him. We have not looked back.

What are your interests outside of Acquira? 

I love drawing and painting, making my house a home, and generally doing anything creative. My son is my greatest achievement and my top priority, as well as my extended family. As a Justice of the Peace, I try to help the people in my community.

What is the best advice you have ever received?
Be true to yourself and treat people how you would like to be treated at that time and at that age. It is about discretion, honesty and respect. At every age. In every situation.

What is on top of your bucket list?

That is easy. To buy an apartment.

What is your idea of a great week at work?

To have achieved all I set out to do at the beginning of the week, and still managed to have a laugh along the way.
