Bio

My financial services career started at Commercial First Mortgages within the Sales and Marketing Department, as an Internal Sales Co-ordinator.  My organisation and leadership skills were soon recognised and I was promoted to Project Specialist where I was responsible for the development of new projects, working closely with Department Heads and Directors.  My role incorporated the management of the Internal Sales Team.

In 2010, Russell asked me to join Finance 4 Business as Office Manager to assist with the development of the business. As the company expanded, I was promoted to Director of Operations. My role encompasses various factors including overseeing IT, HR and day to day running of the office.

  • If you had to sing a karaoke song what would it be?
