I have worked in the industry for over 25 years and am fully qualified to provide financial advice. In addition to the standard Financial Planning Certificate, I also have Advanced Financial Planning Certificates in Personal Investment Planning, and Taxation and Trusts*.

I am committed to ensuring that my industry knowledge remains relevant and current by placing a strong emphasis on my personal development. This, along with the pride and dedication that I place on developing solid personal relationships with my clients, ensures that am I able to offer a rounded, professional and yet very personal service.

Outside of work I was a qualified RYA sailing instructor and proudly held the RYA/MCA Yacht Master certificate. However, work and family life have kept me off the water now for the past three or four years but never say never. Other than that, I enjoy anything outdoors.

I joined the team in May 2000 as a Personal Assistant and Secretary. My main role is to assist Director Michael Earnshaw, organising his diary, making appointments and compiling reports for clients. I also help in the general running of the office.

Prior to joining the team, I worked for a telecommunications company Cable & Wireless for 7 years dealing with customer billing enquires and also as a Team Leader. I also worked for Provident Life for 11 years as a Secretary/Receptionist and looked after 9 sales advisers and a Regional Manager in relation to investment/mortgage business.

I thoroughly enjoy organising office functions/parties and ensure that everyone is included and joins in. My hobbies include shopping and horses.

I joined the company back in 1990, working as a secretary to Stuart Earnshaw and have been chained to my desk ever since! I met and married Mike in 1999 and together we have two boys, aged 17 and 14 and a seven year old, slightly daft Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

My position in the company has somewhat changed from its original administrative role as I now deal with all manner of internal accounts, working on a part-time basis, although I still assist with reports as and when necessary.

Outside of the office, I enjoy walking, eating out, holidays and socialising in general (I love a good party). As my family live in Ireland, I also spend a lot of time in the Emerald Isle enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside.
