Having worked in financial services for 11 years, I have worked alongside Chris for six. I'm responsible for the day-to-day office management, ensuring all client meetings are prepared for and any recommendations are actioned. I am often the first point of call for clients.
I also work closely with Chris in the planning for the client recommendations, along with the overall business planning.
I have been married forever to David, with two grown daughters, Hannah and Dalya and a gorgeous grandson, Micah.
Ballet is one of my first loves and we have now progressed onto ballroom dancing (although we’re more Hi-de-Hi than Strictly!).
I love reading, walking the dog and generally just being with our family and friends.
I spend a lot of time as Chair of a Local Housing Association and also working with Breast Cancer Haven, a support charity based in Leeds.
