From an early age, I was very aware of the personal sacrifices my parents made for me, watching my father work 7 days a week to provide my brother and I with private education. As a parent myself, this resonates even more and continues to drive me. I felt, and continue to feel, extremely privileged and carry the same ethos to ensure that their personal sacrifices were worth it.
My team. I am very fortunate to have worked with a great team for almost a decade. We take a collaborative approach in managing our client’s investments and building those ever-important personal relationships. Life isn’t always straight forward and by having a united approach, we can continue to deliver, no matter what life throws at us.
Communication, honesty and integrity are key in building trust, as well as listening to ensure you have a thorough understanding. Be honest, don’t just tell people what you think they want to hear.
Just be yourself, treat people as you would like to be treated.
Don’t try to run before you can walk. Be curious about everything and never be afraid to ask silly questions.

In 2015 I was diagnosed with Lupus, an autoimmune condition. This came as a shock and left me feeling quite helpless and angry that I would have to live with a long-term illness that cannot be cured. In my mid 20’s I was told that I would need medication for the rest of my life and consequently suffered with hair loss and weight gain, both of which knocked my confidence.
A further low point was being told that I may struggle to conceive, and I knew at this point I had two options: accept it at face-value and give up on everything I had worked hard for, or, focus and prioritise what was important to me, and then take small steps in working towards those goals.
I’m pleased to say that I was able to finally stop taking steroids in January this year and feel great! My diagnosis shaped me and made me determined to make the most out of life.
One step at a time… I’m a planner and love a list.
I enjoy the investment side of my role along with the personal interaction, and the people I work with. Sitting down, listening, and working with my clients to help create a plan to achieve their life goals brings me great satisfaction and happiness.
As a female investment manager in a predominately male-led industry, I feel that we bring a different dynamic to the party. Support for women-led businesses can bring forward new ideas and drive both equality and success in our society.

What I feel passionate about both professionally and personally…
My family are at the centre of everything I do and are key to my own personal success. I aim to be the best mum that I can be and teach my children that with hard work and dedication, you can achieve anything.
This transfers into my professional life, achieving a huge amount of satisfaction in making people happy and comfortable, including my clients. Trust is extremely important to me, and by working hard to achieve it, I’ve been lucky in building great relationships. I’d like to think that my clients know that I am always at the end of a phone for a friendly chat.
How do I stay motivated at work and at home?
My kids keep me motivated. I want to be a strong role model for them.
