I’ve always been fascinated by money and numbers, which is convenient given that I earn a living looking at them! But it wasn’t until I started working in a bank as a cashier at 16 that I discovered many different ways money can transform people’s lives.
After this realisation, I immediately fell in love with the world of finance, and I’ve never looked back. Eighteen years later, I’m an author of The Money Edit, your no blame, no shame guide to taking control of your finances. I’ve partnered with multi-million-pound companies like John Lewis, Waitrose and Metro Bank. I’ve appeared on ITV This Morning and BBC Radio and featured in various notable publications such as the Financial Times, Harpers Bazaar, Women’s Health, Glamour and The Stylist to name a few. I’ve also worked with several A-list actors, artists and athletes. It’s been one hell of a ride.
I love my job and (almost) everything that comes with it, BUT I recognise my industry paints itself as overly complex and somewhat exclusive. I resent this because it prevents so many people from reaching their financial potential to live the life they’ve always dreamed of.
I’ve worked with clients from various backgrounds, and they all share similar apprehensions about financial planning.
I don’t believe this is right, and it is something that I’m determined to change!
