My professional life
I have been working in the profession since I was 27 in a number of different roles, starting off as a direct sales adviser with Royal Life, moving to administration then paraplanning. I’ve been with collperkins since 2013, covering a range of different areas of the business, including compliance and GDPR, HR, fees processing, reporting to the FCA, processes and procedures, overseeing client work and dealing with any queries or issues.
My personal life
I am a mum of two grown-up daughters who are my pride and joy. I love sport, now watching more than playing, but I go to the gym twice a week. I also enjoy running and have taken part in the Great South Run three times and other runs including the Hastings Half Marathon.
In my spare time, I make and decorate cakes. My main study while I was completing my Bachelor of Education Degree was Art and I have begun drawing again, although I’d like to do more!
