Registered Migration Agent from the Gold Coast, Australia

Rhiannon McCaulay

I joined Pathway to Aus in 2016 when I met Nick. Soon after finishing my studies in migration law I joined the migration team as a registered migration agent and have remained here for close to 5 years.

I love that Australia is really multicultural. I think that we are really welcoming and accepting of all kinds of people from all over the world which makes Australia a cool place to live. It’s a really beautiful country too. Besides Australia my favorite countries are China or Vietnam. Both have fantastic food, interesting history and nice people

Lead Education Agent from Sydney, Australia

Brad Lincoln

I have been with Pathway to Aus from the beginning, I helped start it with Nick in 2012. Prior to Pathway To Aus, I was working as a Project Manager for a construction company. I have a solid foundation of experience in the construction industry which has helped me to advise students who are looking to study trades in Australia.

I love Australia because it’s home. It doesn’t matter where I go in the world, there is nowhere like Australia. Outside of Australia, my favourite place to visit Penang, Malaysia. It is an amazing place with wonderful food and friendly people.

UK & Europe Business Manager from the Gold Coast, Australia

Andrew Stewart

I have been working in the travel, tourism and working holiday industry since 2011, so moving into migration and education was something that interested me and seemed like a logical next step. In 2019 I was looking to make this step and Pathway to Aus was looking for someone to work with our clients in the UK and Europe and the rest is history!

I love Australia because of its multicultural cities, relaxed lifestyle and great weather. Outside of Australia my favourite place in the world is Umbria, Italy.

Migration Lawyer, Education & Migration Agent

Sara Cullen

I was born and raised on the Gold Coast. I hold a Bachelor of Law (Hons) and International Commerce from Griffith University and am an Australian Registered Migration Agent (MARA: 1796047).

I joined Nick, Brad and Rhi at Pathway to Aus in 2017. I have never looked back. My passion is helping people. As an Aussied qualified lawyer, education and migration agent, I am well placed to help find the most suitable study option, and advise on possible future migration pathways.

Australia is a great place. I have lived and worked all over the world, including London, San Francisco, Vancouver and Wellington but as the saying goes, there is no place like home. Being back home and being able to go to work each day doing something that I love is very fulfilling. I know you will love Australia too. I look forward to helping you achieve your Aussie dream!

Migration Assistant from Columbus, Ohio, USA

Lena Veritas

I was working as an Immigration Lawyer in America and decided to move to Australia in 2017. After an F-45 class in Burleigh Heads a friend overheard Nick talking about working in immigration. She walked straight over, got his contact details and I emailed him that day. Nick asked me to come to the office the following week and I never left.

I love Australia because it’s basically a massive playground for those who enjoy living outdoors. Other places that I love are Sri Lanka, Indonesia, France, Costa Rica…basically anywhere that English isn’t the first language and I can surf, practice yoga and eat amazing food.

Migration Agent

Ifel Donovan

I was born and raised in the Philippines. I came to Australia in 2005 and got my residency in 2008.

It has been a dream to bring all my family to Australia and share with them all the opportunities that Australia has given me. This is the main reason why I studied Migration Law and Practice at Griffith University. I will be taking my Capstone exam this year so I can finally get my license as a Registered Migration Agent.

I joined Pathway to Aus 6 months after graduating. I assist students with the Graduate visa. Here, I have met different people in every walk of life and have learnt so much as a Migration Assistant.

Suri Anderhold

Pathway to Aus assisted my partner and I in applying for a student visa when we were in South Africa. About 2 months after we arrived in Australia Nick and Brad took me under their wing and offered me a job, and here I am, almost three years later and still loving every moment of it! By far the best company ever to be a part of. When people ask what I love most about Australia, I can’t name just one thing specifically. It’s Australia, what’s not to love! My favourite place in the world, aside from Australia, is Switzerland.

I was working in the working holiday industry when a friend mentioned there was a position opening up at Pathway to Aus. I was looking for a more challenging and rewarding role, so I did some research online about Pathway to Aus, loved what the company stands for and the rest is history.

What I love the most about Australia are the beaches, rainforests, sunshine and chilled vibes. Outside of Australia, my favourite place is Bali.


Migration Assistant from Cardiff, Wales

Natasha Garland

My fiancé found Pathway to Aus when looking for the perfect course to study in Australia. When we arrived here, I took the opportunity to apply for an open position as I could not believe how dedicated the team at Pathway to Aus were. I just wanted to be part of something that gives so much opportunity to people from all over the world and I have loved every minute since joining this little diverse family.

I love Australia for the beautiful beaches, national parks and laidback lifestyle.
My favourite place in the world aside from home (as that is always where my heart will be), would probably be Paris. The romance, the art and museums, the food and wine all make it the perfect weekend getaway. Not forgetting that Disneyland is just outside the city if you want to channel your inner child and have lots of fun with Mickey and the gang.

Migration Assistant

Bart Hutchinson

I was born in Mt Isa in central Queensland but grew up in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales. I taught English as a second language for around 13 years, 3 years in Russia, 1 ½ years in Vietnam and 2 years in Japan, plus 6 ½ years on the Gold Coast, Australia. During this time I met Nick Yock, founder of Pathway to Aus.

I decided to make the change to become a Migration Agent in 2019 as I wanted a career where I can help people realise their dreams of living, studying and possibly immigrating to Australia. I love this country and want to have the opportunity to share it with people of different countries and cultures. As a result, I studied the Graduate Diploma of Migration Law and Practice which was completed in November 2019 and am now waiting to sit the Capstone Exam to become a registered Migration Agent.

I am excited to be working at Pathway to Aus and I look forward to assisting you in your future applications.

Hi, I work as an education assistant at Pathway to Aus. I was born and raised in the Philippines and then I moved to Australia for the final year of my education. To live, study and work in Australia was a priceless experience and I fell in love with the country. It has such amazing people, culture, weather and scenery. My experience in Australia really shaped who I am today in such a positive manner with all those factors combined. In my spare time, I like to keep myself active, I usually do some boxing or go for a hike or just chill by the beach. I’m generally a very laid back person and I’m often told that I have a knack for spreading positive energy around me. I also enjoy chatting with people from all walks of life and I believe I have skills that are transferable to almost any field, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

To top that, the food, the people, the culture and the great outdoors are something that international students will definitely love, enjoy and embrace while studying in Aus.

Migration Assistant

Liza Wright

A born and bred Durbanite from South African who left mother Africa at the age of 16 to take on the greatest state in the world. Texas!! After 10 years the “great international move” began to itch deep within so I headed to London and after many many moons, landed with both feet firmly on Australian ground 12 years ago.
Having lived in 5 different countries throughout my life and going through all that immigration work for each one of the moves, I decided to use my background and degree in Business Development and Consulting to commingle it with a career in immigration.

I relish the ability to assist others in making their dream of immigrating to a new country for business, work, study or family come true. I am stoked to be able to work amongst such an awesome team that Nick and Brad have built here at Pathways. Their passion for assisting others in their migration journey matches up with mine perfectly.

I look forward to walking alongside you throughout your migration process to Australia with my work and life experience to back us up and make the journey a little bit easier for you.

I was born in Spain and grew up in the beautiful Mediterranean. When I arrived in Australia more than seven years ago, I was only going to stay for a six month student visa, but life happens and now I am happy to call Australia home. I’m sure many can relate!

I joined Pathway to Aus in 2021. I love being able to help international students as I was a student myself not that long ago, so I understand the worries that come with moving to a new country.

I love Australia for the laidback lifestyle and the opportunities that offers. Although my favourite place in the world will always be my beautiful home in the Mediterranean, Menorca.
