I have worked in the financial services since 1989 and joined FOCUS in October 1996. Starting in administration support, I progressed to managing a team of administrators and paraplanners.
Seeking new challenges, my role at FOCUS role changed to Client Services Manager in order to develop relationships with both new and existing clients - not only on the financial services side of the business, but also to introduce this to the insurance divisions. This also encompassed the introduction of social media for the business and taking responsibility for the website content and marketing communications.
Upon moving to our new home in west Wales in December 2014, I became self-employed and now provide ongoing marketing and communication services working remotely from home with regular visits to the team in Oxford.
Alongside my "day job" my husband and I run our smallholding - Rhydgaled. I now combine my marketing role with one of animal management and producing top class produce from our pigs and sheep, as well as farmhouse cakes and bakes.
