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. 5 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.

20 Years banking experience with ANZ has given me the foundation to assist in all areas of day to day banking. I was a Mortgage specialist prior to working for Affinity Mortgage Advisors, but now I find myself immersed in the lending scene assisting Affinity with all their back office lending applications and customer management.

I am extremely passionate working for a successful team, as I have the ability to contribute my experience and ideas to assist our clients. We really do offer a full service, which I am proud to be apart of.

When I am not working I can be found walking, which I love to do. I also like spending a lot of time with my friends and family, and my two grandsons.

As one of the original staff members of ASB Dunedin branch, I find myself entering Affinity Mortgage Advisors with a legacy of banking knowledge. I have taken on a new challenge on 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.
