Tell us about yourself 

I grew up in Hertfordshire and moved to Scotland when I was 30 and have worked in various roles for a number of brokers and insurers

When the opportunity arose in late 2021 to join PIB, I jumped at the opportunity! Now I am part of a growing team in the PIB Glasgow office and my role involves broking and supporting the Account Executives.

Best thing about being part of PIB?

I feel there is a client-centric approach to client management, and I enjoy being part of a growing team.

What does collaboration mean to you?

Understanding there is no ‘I’ in team and we are all responsible for achieving the common goal of being seen as the number one broker.

Best careers advice you’ve been given or would give?

Don’t let an opportunity pass you by.

How do you relax outside of work – any interesting hobbies or talents?

I enjoy walking my dog and I am going to start learning British Sign Language this year. 

One thing most people won’t know about you?

I enjoyed Karate in my teens and gained my black belt. Also, the back of my head appeared in a magazine marketing campaign for Ben Sherman shirts when I was 15.
