My Story

A bit about me...

I started my career in insurance in 2007 and have always worked in the London market, mainly for Lloyd's syndicates and managing agents.

I always had big ambitions but often felt side lined for promotion, usually in favour of a male counterpart or someone who had attended a particular public school!

Further into my career I had difficult bosses and despite considering myself a confident person, I had my self esteem shattered when time after time I wouldn't get considered for promotion despite my hard work and efforts.

I didn't feel good enough. It didn't help that my personal circumstances at home were creeping into my professional life.

Like most people in the world, I’ve certainly faced my fair share of challenges in life. From living with an alcoholic Mother who sadly passed away in 2018 aged just 51, to surviving emotionally abusive relationships, to dealing with narcissistic bosses and trying to make my mark in a male dominated industry. It's not been plain sailing.

But I am living proof that your past experiences do not have to define you and you can change things around dramatically once you've made the conscious decision to change.

People often say to me that they would have no clue that I've been through the things I have, due to my optimistic nature and positive attitude, and I am humbled and truly thankful to hear that! Because it means that all the hard work and personal development I've done have paid off.

It means that I can now teach and guide others and use my past pains as great learning, which I now see as a blessing.

My mission is to help women in insurance feel as confident and self assured as possible so they can go after their dream job, go for promotion, speak up at work, not be afraid of failure and not feel anxious. 

They will be able to kick imposter syndrome to the kerb, banish self doubt and laugh in the face of challenging situations. 

They will be the rulers of their destiny and work will become exciting and easy again!

No obstacle will phase them.

No boss will be able to intimidate them.

No colleague will undermine them.

Because they will have the tools and techniques that will equip them for any challenge and the rock solid mindset that will serve them for the rest of their career.

How does that sound?!
