- Certificate IV in Mortgage Broking (Kaplan – Sydney)

Juliana started her role in finance as a Customer Service Officer at Flexirent Pty Ltd. Within 3 months of being in her role, she was promoted to Customer Acquisitions Officer and within 3 months of that, she was promoted to Customer Loyalty Service Specialist. After proving to be a great addition to the team, she was selected among a group of great consultants to pioneer what was to be a component in the company’s growth as a Business to Business finance specialist and part time Customer Loyalty Services Team Leader.
During this time, Juliana was also undertaking studies in her Bachelor of Business (Financial Planning). Her high academic achievements led her to win an Academic Achievement Scholarship to study a Bachelor of Accounting. She finished both degrees with Distinction.
This chapter of her life opened great opportunities for Juliana as she was offered a role in the Audit Office of NSW as a financial auditor and later, into a compliance role at The Monkeys.
After careful consideration, Juliana decided to move back into finance by studying Mortgage and Finance Broking and securing a role at Moneywise Global as a home loan specialist. This is where she found one of her true passions for helping her customers accomplish their goal of purchasing their first home, their dream home, building their property portfolio and helping their financial situation by refinancing their current loans. Her time at Moneywise Global was truly enjoyable, not only did she have great customers but also, fantastic colleagues and friends.
In 2014 Juliana decided it was time to take the next step in her career. She founded Prana Credit Solutions, and although she started as a the sole business owner she was not alone. She counted with the support of her husband, family and friends. But this was not all, Juliana also received the full support of an industry leading aggregation group, Connective Credit Services Pty Ltd as well and the whole panel of lenders within her portfolio.
This transition was seemingly fast and easy. Juliana believes that knowing what you want is the first and biggest step to move towards it. She has now created this wonderful business and life long relationships that she is really proud of.
And another side of her that is really interesting is her love for music. She loves singing and has written and recorded multiple songs in different genres. If you meet her, don’t forget to ask her about her creative side.
