I have worked in the financial services sector for over 9 years and my journey has been fundamental in helping me understand what financial advice is all about. I’ve advised clients for four years now, before that I wrote technical reports as a Paraplanner and started out way back when as an Administrator.
I’m a Chartered Financial Planner, the highest accolade for Financial Advisers in the UK. I’m incredibly proud of that but, in my view, the journey I’ve shared with hundreds of clients over the years is my most significant achievement.
After working for a firm with £600m under management, I set up an independent, family-run business in 2022. I wanted to put my clients first, create a community for them and help those that need it most, regardless of their position.
Outside of work, Danielle and I (the real boss of the business) enjoy travelling, restaurants, and weekends full of dog walks. Personally, I follow Nottingham Forest, boxing, golf, darts, and to be honest, most sports! I love discussing these hobbies with fellow clients, and sharing the experience with them.

Ben and I often talked over dinner about setting up a business together. His financial expertise and my background in customer-centric marketing seemed like the perfect fit for a financial planning firm that puts the client at the heart of its culture.
My role with Stephen Eve is to make sure clients are well looked after and their experience with us is exemplary. Whether that is through the documents you receive, the process of booking in for a review, how we present our advice, and the fun stuff like events.
I also manage business development and marketing - guiding how Stephen Eve grows whilst sticking to our values.
I have run my own consultancy, On The Dot Marketing, for over 4 years but I cut my teeth in the corporate world. Mainly working in the Loyalty Marketing team at Boots.
Outside of work, I love running, live music, and travelling with Ben. Oh, and the office pup, Sadie!

Following several years of experience as a Senior Client Administrator, my latest role as Trainee Paraplanner allows me to take the next step in the wealth management industry. In the past, my career has included roles at two successful financial advice companies, so I'm excited to bring my learnings to Stephen Eve.
Outside of work, I'm a huge football (Spurs) fan, enjoy staying fit, which includes playing football, and love vegan food.
