BCOMPT; PGDIP FINANCIAL PLANNING
I have more than 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry. My career started in 1989, at Metropolitan where I was exposed to many different facets of the insurance industry ranging from administration, broker, auditing and training. From this, I obtained a holistic skills set from working within a variety of diverse fields. Finding the financial field the most stimulating, I then joined the Consolidated Financial Planning (now Citadel Financial Planning) team in August 2008 to champion the Financial Wellness division. I have a passion to see all people, irrespective of social standing, being set free from financial burdens. Through the financial wellness programme we provide training on all financial aspects, from learning to manage your finances to preparing for retirement. Equipping individuals for each stage of their financial journey. On a personal level, I am married to Sean and we have two children; Milissa and Keanan. When I am not at work or busy with community work, I love spending time with my family.
