Tell me a little about yourself
I have been in the insurance industry for 18 years with the majority of that time spent broking. My family owned several small businesses which I think has given me a great insight into what business owners go through on a day-to-day basis. I also owned a BNB up to recently which went from doing nicely to nought during covid.
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter and our dog Brioche.
I am studying a bach of business (Insurance) with not long to go.
