As administrator at Croft and Oakes I aim to give high quality admin support to the team to ensure the business can run smoothly and allow the advisers to continue to provide an exceptional service to existing and new clients.


I have worked for over 30 years within an administration role starting my admin career with Yorkshire Bank Finance.  I spent 17 years within the educational sector providing admin support within both state and private education establishments in the Telford area, before joining Croft & Oakes in 2021.

Hobbies and Interests

I have lived in Shropshire for most of my life and am married with one daughter. I enjoy walking and any sporting activity, but especially cricket where I am treasurer of my local cricket club, Albrighton. As well as helping with the coaching of the junior section, I have also set up the Ladies Softball Cricket Team at the club and have now encouraged over 40 ladies to join in the fun of Softball Cricket along with Music and Prosecco.

I have also represented the West Midlands at Netball and was West Midlands Grass Roots Coach of the Year 2020.

I have completed several charity walks from Albrighton cricket club to various cricket grounds around England, raising several thousands of pounds along the way.
