I have over 20 years’ experience working in the financial services industry, and have a keen interest in positive psychology and the impact on working environments.
I play an active role in the day to day running of Face to Face Finance and Face to Face Finance Consulting, both on the management and the back office side, proactively growing the company.
I am currently studying towards my industry Chartered qualifications.
Outside work, I am a Director of the St Kilda Club, promoting interest and friendship among those who have visited the islands.
I am married, and love travelling, the more far flung the better!
I have over 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry. Previously working at Acuma and Friends Provident, I became an Independent Financial Adviser in 2003.

I am a Chartered Financial Planner and have also been awarded a Fellowship of the Personal Finance Society.
I advise individuals, businesses and trustees and work with Accountants and Solicitors who refer their clients to me for their financial planning requirements. I specialise in Investments, Inheritance Tax and Estate planning and Pensions but am fully qualified to advise on all areas of financial planning as well as Wills and Trusts.
I’m married to Linda, have two grown up children and spend much of my spare time looking after an old house and doing the gardening basics (anything involving an engine) under the supervision of Linda!
I have worked within the administration team at Face to Face Finance since 2011. In my time here, I am proud to have achieved my Diploma in Financial Planning and am looking forward to challenging myself to achieving Chartered status in the coming months.
Since I have worked here, I have successfully done pretty much every job in the office, from reports and reception duties to being Ralphs PA – all of these give me a great grounding in my current role as Compliance Director. This job includes making sure all of our reports and letters are correct and accurate and our procedures and processes are documented. I enjoy dealing with more complex queries that we receive in the office and I also oversee the day to day running of the administration team.
The part of my job which I enjoy most is being able to provide a great, friendly service to all of our clients and feeling like we really make a difference.
Outside of work I enjoy going for walks along the coast, going to the Gym and reading.
I started working for Face to Face Finance in May 2017 and have progressed to Senior Administrator and Bob’s PA. My current role includes answering and making client phone calls, creating up to date valuations and writing up letters plus much more. It is a pleasure to work in an office so welcoming and friendly and somewhere I can always expand on my knowledge and grow my career.
I have always lived and worked in Norfolk and my family and friends are very important to me. In my spare time I enjoy socialising and catching up with friends by going out for a meal or going to the cinema.
I started working for Face to Face Finance in September 2016 when I moved to Hempnall. They are a great company to work for and I love my job and all my colleagues and we make an awesome team!
I enjoy the variety of work we do at Face to Face Finance so every day is different. I’ve learnt so much since I’ve worked here and I keep learning new things which is great and keeps my job interesting. I love being able to help our clients on the phone and it’s lovely when we get to meet them when they visit the office. Previously, I worked for Norwich and Peterborough for 10 years and I enjoyed my role there.
I’m 37 and have two beautiful daughters. One is ten and the other one is eight. They are lovely girls and they keep me busy outside of work.
I have recently bought a house with my partner which I am so pleased about. It needs a lot of work doing to it so this is our project for 2019. I have a busy year this year as I am also getting married in June and I can’t wait!
I’m a bubbly character with a fun personality and enjoy catching up with my friends. I like going out for nice meals, cinema nights, enjoying family time and keeping fit.
I joined Face to Face Finance in June 2018, after being given a great opportunity to train to be a Financial Adviser. Since joining in June I have passed my first two exams and plan to take another two before Summer 2019. I spend my days shadowing Ralph, meeting clients and learning from his experience. My career in financial services began at Norwich and Peterborough in October 2013 and has lead me to where I am today – in a job that I absolutely love! I’m aiming to be qualified by the end of 2019, so watch this space.
2018 has not only brought to me a new job, but also the pleasure of becoming Auntie Em to my first nephew Liam. I’m looking forward to seeing more of the world and have plans to visit Croatia and the Norwegian Fjords in the near future.
I joined Face to Face Finance in August 2018 as an administrator after deciding I wanted a career change. My previous experience in retail really helps me connect with our clients. I am one of the first people they will speak to when calling in or walking through our door.
Being an administrator, I take client calls, write reports and work on the behind the scenes goings on.
I am currently studying for my RO1 and I’m looking forward to progressing in the finance business. By taking these exams I will be able to help our clients further by providing them with better knowledge.
I love the working environment we have here. We all get along really well and I have made some great friends. I’d like to think I’m the funny one in the office, however the others may disagree! When I’m not working you can probably find me in the gym or socialising with friends and family.
I joined Face to Face Finance in January 2019 as an administrator. My role here includes answering and making client calls, writing reports and letters and creating up to date valuations.
I am a versatile driven professional with experience in the legal sector in Brazil. I am passionate about economics and politics, and I am a very keen on developing an edge in finance.
I have studied law and economics, and I am currently pursuing a degree in Business Administration.
In my free time, my husband and I spend time doing sports or cooking at home.
I started working for Face to Face in February 2019 as an administrator and I have learnt so much already. My previous experience working as an accounts administrator at a local firm of Chartered Accountants has given me a good starting knowledge of the industry and I look forward to learning more.
My current role includes answering and making client phone calls, creating up to date valuations, writing reports and much more. I am currently studying for my RO1 exam and am keen to expand my knowledge and take on more responsibility. I am very lucky to work in an office where I have made many friends and we are encouraged to develop ourselves professionally.
I have always lived in Norfolk and love making the most of what our beautiful county has to offer with my two young children; going on adventures in the forest and days out regularly. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
I started at Face to Face in April 2019, after deciding on a career change from retail supervisor. My day to day role includes managing Julie’s emails and appointments, taking minutes, updating documents, and even the little touches like arranging fresh flowers on the front desk. I also run our social media channels. I enjoy the creative side of it, and it really highlights how much we do as a company!
From October I will be studying my Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning, alongside extra Compliance modules, so that I can better support Julie and Becky with a higher level of technical knowledge.
I love the variety each day brings in my position, and the support from the company to develop and progress. We have a really positive working environment here and have the perfect work and play balance.
Outside of work, I can be found with my art at local craft fairs, attending music events or having a games night with my friends. I’m currently house hunting with my boyfriend, so that’s my next big life goal!
