I joined Shipman Monahans Wealth Management in 2011 after relocating from Devon where I worked for a Financial Advice firm for 9 years.

I am a member and Fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute and qualified as a Chartered Financial Planner in 2009. As well as the general running of the business, my role involves working with clients to deliver professional and independent financial advice which is tailored to their specific requirements. Every client scenario is different and therefore requires a unique solution which makes the job both interesting and rewarding. My qualifications and experience cover all aspects of Financial Planning and Wealth Management.

I joined Shipman Monahans Wealth Management in September 2017, having previously worked for a number of Financial Advisor firms, including a high street bank and investment platform provider. I enjoy the challenges of the ever changing financial legislation, which constantly shapes the advice that I provide.

I began my career in finance by providing mortgage advice for a large independent brokerage, although I soon found that I wanted to expand my knowledge to provide advice on all aspects of Financial Planning. Therefore, after initially providing technical support as a paraplanner, and having attained my Level 4 Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning, I have now been providing independent advice for a number of years.  

 

My qualifications and experience cover all aspects of Financial Planning and Wealth Management.
