Meet your dream team
Paraplanners, Chasers, and more.
I am Diploma qualified and SJP accredited, and have been with SJP since 2017. I live in Shropshire with my husband and two little boys.
I love to bake, love eating out and having family days out with my boys.
Rainy days, bad manners, not having enough sleep (sadly impossible when you have kids!)
I have been in financial services for about 20 years (but seems a lot longer!). I've been lucky enough to work for some great financial institutions such as Legal & General and HSBC, wearing many different hats from advising to broker. Prior to joining Plus my business was contracted to a pension compliance review for one of the high street banks, which lasted for 7 years.
I enjoy hiking, running and getting into the sea when it's not Arctic conditions. If I'm not working I can usually be found in a nook off the coastal path with a book, the dog and flask of tea.
Rudeness, queues, commuting (which is one of the reasons why I love my job), social media when used for anything other than work or seeing nice photos.
Studied Modern Languages then worked in Investment Banking dealing with French and Spanish clients, before deciding to retrain as a Financial Adviser. Diploma qualified through the SJP Academy - I went onto to have my own Practice as an Adviser. Paraplanning became a better fit for my family life rather than investing, so I worked as a Paraplanner for two SJP Practices before joining Plus.
Going to the theatre, eating out, holidays and a bit of gym/squash.
Aubergines - who wants to eat a sponge?
18 years industry experience. Senior paraplanner at an SJP practice for 6 years, ex-Financial Adviser, both SJP and IFA.
I love cooking and discovering new dishes, then trying to match wines with them. I also like swimming, walking and reading.
Bad manners and rudeness and my biggest dislikes. I've also been told I'm impatient so I don't like to be kept waiting!!

How does the handover process work?
We’ve made the process quick and easy for you. If you want to find out more, click here to view our handover documents.
Will I be tied into a contract?
We have no up-front fees or tie-in period, simply register and pay on a case-by-case basis. There’s also no minimum number of cases you need to send us.
Can you use our LOAs or do PLUS have their own?
Our Paraplanning Team have created a great LOA template, which we would be happy to send to you, but we are also happy to use yours and send this on your behalf, should this be your preferred way of doing things.
How often will your Paraplanning Team provide me with updates?
We want to ensure you always know what is going on with your cases, so our Paraplanning Team will ensure you are regularly updated and guarantee weekly communication to all Partners as a minimum.
How much does your Paraplanning service cost?
Our fees vary depending on the type of plan and what is required, with Suitability Letters starting from £150.
Will you be able to access my client records?
Absolutely, it’s easy to grant access to individual client records on iBusiness and our team would be happy to talk you through this.
Can you deal with the LOAs as part of the Paraplanning service and is this at an additional cost?
Absolutely, we offer this as part of our Paraplanning service and include it at no extra cost.
We have a dedicated LOA Chasing Team, who are experts obtaining Ceding scheme information from third party providers. Our Chasing and Paraplanner teams also work together and will ensure any missing information from the Ceding Scheme is quickly sorted to avoid any delays.
We do also offer LOA Chasing as a standalone service, should this be something you require. Further details of this can be found here.
Do you need me to gather everything together before sending you the case?
No. Because we offer chasing as part of our service, you don’t need to spend time contacting providers and collating the information. Just complete the simple handover document and send us any documentation you have, and our experienced team can do the rest.
