• When did you join Ovation August 2019
  • What was the first record you bought? Baby Give It Up by KC and the Sunshine Band (I wanted Red Red Wine by UB40 but it had sold out)
  • What makes you laugh? Lots of things but I quite like a dry sense of humour
  • What makes you cry? The ending of my favourite book, Four Fires by Bryce Courtenay. It gets me each time, without fail.

  • One thing you would like to do before you die? I'd love to dive with a great white shark but without a cage.

Paraplanner

I first began my career in financial services back in 1996, shortly after leaving university. For the next 16 years I held various positions, mainly as an adviser working with personal and corporate clients. Having my own family then led me down a different path. After volunteering with various groups my children were involved with, I retrained and became a primary school teacher in 2014.  

Despite some amazing times I decided to return to the world of financial advice and, after being aware of Ovation for many years, I was lucky enough to be offered the chance to join the team in a more technical role.  I didn’t want to join ‘any old business’. The ethos behind the way everything Ovation does makes it a special place to be and I knew straight away it was somewhere I wanted to be part of.  

When I’m not working I’m usually spending time with my family. I try to make time to visit the gym a few times a week to try and convince myself I’m younger than my years and to help me keep up with my two boys. I’ve been very fortunate to see some amazing places around the world and am doing my very best to infect my sons with the travel bug by taking them to as many exciting places as possible.
