I am an Authorised Financial Adviser with over 25 years of lending experience. I have both worked and been a manager at ANZ, National Bank, Country Wide, and was a superannuation specialist in Australia for St George Bank.

My transition to financial advising was seamless, as I have been lending most my life. The big difference for me as a mortgage advisor is that I can now work for you! Finding my clients the best mortgage products & rates is such a rewarding aspect of the job. The best part being my service is completely free!

I am an active mother of two who enjoys time with my family, friends, and socialising. When I am not working you can often find me walking at St Clair beach, or enjoying the company of friends over a wine in the Octagon.

I am a Registered Financial Adviser taking a fresh & focused approach to mortgage advising. 11 years of lending experience & a Bachelor of Commerce has provided me with a strong foundation to offer expert Mortgage advice.

I have immersed myself early in the field of mortgages, and am passionate in securing strong deals for my clients. Affinity Mortgage Advisors always has a solution, and we work closely with our clients to ensure no rock is left un turned when sourcing the very best solutions for our customers.

Outside of work, I am often out playing sport and relaxing with friends and family.

After 15 years working in the financial service industry, I was given the opportunity to join the Affinity team in April 2018. I bring to the Affinity family a dynamic range of customer service skills to accompany my banking and insurance background that I gained with my time with BNZ, Westpac & AMI. I am passionate about helping customers achieve their goals – and am here to help in all facets of the day-to-day business.  

As a mortgage adviser I take a deep interest in my client’s goals and love the opportunity to source solutions to make them happen. Communication is important to me, and I always make sure I am highly contactable for all of my clients.  

When away from work you will most often find me with family and friends. I have two beautiful boys that keep my partner and I on our toes, but we love every minute of being parents in a great city like Dunedin.

As a Mortgage Adviser I relish the opportunity to assist Kiwi's meeting their home buying goals. Having gone through the first home buying process myself, I understand the guidance and support required when going through this process. I have a keen eye on the market and have the time to nurture my clients through the intricacies of home buying.  

I have been in the finance industry for 2 years now and had the ability to learn the ropes whilst studying a Bachelor of Commerce. This time with Affinity has provided me with a sound knowledge of the banking industry and what areas of finance can suit my clients needs. 

I am a hardworking individual with a drive to succeed and a passion to learn. In the weekends, you could find me around a sports ground or relaxing with Friends & Family.

I am extremely passionate working for a successful motivated team, as I have the ability to contribute my 20 years of experience and knowledge in the banking industry to assist our clients. Affinity offers a full range of financial services.

When I am not working I enjoy spending time with friends and family, including my four young grandchildren. I head outside in most weather with my german short-haired pointer Jetta for a walk or run. I love travelling, and when not overseas I enjoy relaxing in our holiday home.

As one of the original staff members of ASB Dunedin branch, I bring to Affinity a legacy of banking knowledge. I currently head the wealth and investment branch of Affinity, where I assist the investment channel for our in-house AFA, Sandra Spence, as her Executive Assistant.

The skill set I have acquired from my history in customer service has allowed my new role at Affinity to come naturally. As a busy mother of two, and a person who has immersed herself in many roles of responsibility and organisation, I consider myself competent at time management and team cohesion.

I am a founding member and Trustee of the Otago Children’s Autism Support Group, and take great pride in helping to establish this charitable Trust that assist’s families and children with Autism.

Outside of work I am often found enjoying the company of great friends and family, and love to get away to our holiday home in Clyde when given the opportunity.
