How did you get into the role?When I was at university in Liverpool, I got a part-time job as a Customer Service Adviser at Barclays Bank and then when I graduated and moved to Leeds, I was offered a Mortgage and Protection Advisor role, again at Barclays. I soon discovered that I really enjoyed helping people achieve their hopes and dreams when it came to buying, moving or renovating their homes. Fast forward to now and after looking for a new challenge, I joined CS Mortgage Solutions as a Mortgage and Protection Advisor, where I’m enjoying helping people along their home-moving journey.
What do you love about what you do?I love getting to meet new people and spending time getting to know them and their situations, and this really helps me provide tailor-made help and advice. I enjoy being able to help people achieve their mortgage and protection goals, and help them open doors to new opportunities. As a member of the LGBT community, I’m also very aware of the need to be open about our personal situations and family set-ups when we speak to a mortgage advisor and I pride myself in helping everyone equally.
How do you describe your job to your family?I tell my children that I help people borrow the money they need to be able to buy their home and I also show them how they can keep that money safe in case anything happens to them.
What powers you through the day?My three young children are my everything and they inspire me to achieve and be a good example to them.
If you weren’t a mortgage advisor, what job would you love to do?I would love to use my skills to deliver Financial Education to children, giving them the tools they need to manage their money later in life. I also love to write and in my spare time I write articles on financial subjects for an LGBT magazine.
What’s an ideal weekend for you?I love to spend time with the people I care about, having fun together and making precious memories.
The one tune that motivates you?It’s got to be Bon Jovi ‘Living on a Prayer’ – it’s an oldie but I still love it!
