About Laura Barclay

Laura Barclay with Rio

Getting Ahead Australia was established in 2014 by Laura Barclay. Laura grew up in London, moved to the USA at 18 and then to Australia after graduating from university. She understands the challenges of moving to a new country, especially when English is not your first language. She speaks French, Spanish and basic Mandarin. 

“For me it’s about helping people live the life they really want. It’s very exciting and rewarding to see what can be achieved with a little extra knowledge, advice and support. My job is simple – to help each client make positive changes they want in their life.”
