Biography

I arrived in New Zealand 13 years ago with a 1 year old and 2 back packs. My husband is a kiwi and I am a Londoner; born and bred. After being a stay at home mum for 2 years I started working in the insurance industry as the PA to the director of an Insurance Brokerage in Auckland. After 2 years there and 1 more son, I decided I wanted to become and Adviser myself and that is where my journey really began. I have worked for one of the largest and most innovative Mortgage Advisers in New Zealand as the only Insurance Advisor supporting 5 mortgage advisors and was there for 4 years before becoming a self-employed contractor building my own client base. I love working with clients to ensure they have an understanding of their risk requirements as well as a knowledge of what their risk portfolio is and how it can work for them. I am passionate about supporting my clients whether it is the beginning of their insurance journey or providing them with the benefit of my knowledge.
