I enjoy spending time with my daughters, and travelling both local and international. My combined work experience gives me better understanding to financial needs of individuals and families.

Financial Mentor/MoneyMates Facilitator
I am keen to see my clients achieve some Financial freedom and taking back control of managing their money to meet their needs and to plan for their future. Looking forward to meeting you and walking the journey with you
I became a financial mentor in 2015 after a lengthy career in the teaching profession, including time spent teaching at primary, secondary and tertiary levels, and 10 years in an educational management position at the University of Waikato in Tauranga. I am committed to empowering people to develop their financial literacy so they enhance their wellbeing and improve their quality of life.
I have been a Financial Mentor since 2016 and have background knowledge in banking, advertising and small business.
I enjoy the great outdoors, and love supporting the community to work with their Finances. I have previously been involved in MoneyMates delivery to young adults.
I have been a Financial Mentor since 2010 and it gives me satisfaction in assisting clients to better their financial position. Every client is different and so is the solution – these can include an Insolvency option, contacting creditors to re- negotiate payments, completing budgets, Kwisaver hardship withdrawals and many others.
Prior to becoming a Financial Mentor, I had 48 years banking experience and I feel this background assists me in dealing with clients.
Outside of work my interests include outdoor bowling and enjoying time with our grandchildren.
