I have worked in the financial services industry since 1982, for a large insurance company and latterly as an adviser. My career started with Commercial Union/Norwich Union and through the many company mergers I left after 22 years as a Senior Manager. I have been advising since 2008. Since then, I have taken the opportunity to increase my knowledge to become a Chartered Financial Planner and Fellow of the Personal Finance Society. In 2019 I completed a master’s degree in Financial Planning and Business Management.


My area of expertise is working with individual clients, specifically in inheritance tax planning, retirement planning and pension transfers. My aim is to take a holistic approach to ensure that clients are given jargon-free and clear advice to enable them to make informed decisions.

Hobbies and Interests

I am originally from Birmingham but now live in Cheshire with my husband Michael and my two dogs Hector and Hattie. My daughters are grown up and making their own careers.

I enjoy walking, reading, and travelling. I am a member of a local book club and I volunteer for and support a number of cancer charities.
