What my clients say

Get to know your coach…

I have over 25 years experience in commercial roles for some of the world’s leading publishers like Hearst UK, Future PLC and Time Inc. I loved to manage the people in my teams, supporting and driving them on to deliver for the business, but also to grow them professionally and personally! Combining a personal interest in finance and passion for helping others, I chose to retrain as a financial coach.
