What is your greatest achievement?

Passing my mortgage qualifications is most definitely my greatest achievement. After watching and working with Advisers, I was inspired to make a career change. I enrolled myself in the CMAP course, studied in my own time and went on to pass the exams. This is my greatest achievement as it was all done on my own merit. I didn’t wait for someone to start my career, I started it myself and I haven’t looked back since. That is a great feeling.

My other achievement is starting a family. I have a young daughter, Harriet, who has changed my life! I wasn’t sure if I wanted children, but she has definitely turned this around! She has taught me so much about life and how to slow down and enjoy the little things.

What do you do for fun?

Outside the office, I love spending time with my family. Harriet keeps us on our toes, as well as our Boston Terrier, Hank and our Bengal cat, Kevin. I love travelling and hope to do more of it in the future. My favourite places are Rome and closer to home, the Isle of Wight. I watch football when I can and I am a Manchester City supporter (please don’t hold this against me) and I love a Netflix box set in the evening.
