I’ve worked within the financial industry for all of my career and almost 40 years. My first job after leaving school began in NatWest in 1983 and I worked in the various departments during my time there, going on to join St. James's Place Wealth Management as a Financial Adviser in 1997. I now work dual roles as a paraplanner and a financial adviser, joining Lester Brunt in 2017.
I love my job because I am able to split my time between two very different but equally rewarding roles, where every day is different. I like the precision of paraplanning and I enjoy talking to clients as an adviser. I offer my clients a more holistic and bespoke level of service and truly believe in giving the best possible advice. I've been with a lot of my clients over many years, through different life stages, and I take pride in knowing that I’m a part of their lives and have helped them to plan for the futures that they’re now living. Before Lester Brunt I worked in a partnership where there were only two of us, just myself with Jafe, I like the challenge of working for a bigger practice - we make a great team, made of great people!
Outside of work, I’m a big supporter of Portsmouth Football Club. I do a lot of DIY and work around the house and garden but keep busy enjoying time with my family. I like spending time with people, socialising with friends and helping my local community wherever I can.
