Diana Velasquez - Registered Migration Agent

Diana came to Australia in 2008 as a student and is a proud Australian citizen today!


In 2016, once she became an Australian citizen, she decided to start a new path by studying Australian Migration Law, a topic that she started feeling passionate about when she had to apply for her visas by herself, including her own partner visa.


Now, she feel grateful to be able to help people to remain in Australia and to know that she contributes to building a better future for them. 

Tamara Andrea Pena Porras - Accounts Manager

Like Diana, Tamara also migrated via the Independent Skilled Visa program. Tamara manages part of the SMC accounts via MYOB and assists with our Latin American clients and in other general tasks. Tamara also works for a major international women’s development organisation.


Fjorida Dragoti - Legal Assistant

Fjorida Dragoti was born in the beautiful lakeside resort town of Pogradec in Albania and completed her high-school studies there.

In 2009, Fjorida moved to Australia to live with her husband. Being a migrant gave Fjorida a personal experience of migration, so she chose to study the specialist Immigration Law course to assist fellow immigrants or new visa applicants.

Fjorida is now working in her field at SMC, as a part time Immigration
Legal Assistant & Client Services Manager and is also undertaking further
studies in Legal Services
