I have a passion for business and people, which feeds into my keen exploration of key issues and emerging trends businesses face in the market. It’s all about making a difference. Knowledge and relationships help us to deliver the best financial solutions to our clients. It’s richly rewarding working with (corporate) clients to understand the challenges their staff face to help them protect, build and invest in their business and future. Together with our team, I strive to help my clients achieve the best possible outcome with a focus on protecting and preserving their dreams.
Financial planning is such rewarding work since our industry is always evolving, which means we are constantly learning and growing too. After almost twenty years in this industry, I remain inspired by its inner-workings. I enjoy reading blogs and industry related topics and media. Staying up to date with what is going on in our financial industry is paramount.
I joined Saint Andrews Brokers 26 years ago, I loved it so much that I have not left since. Love the everyday challenges. Being able to guide and help our staff grow their knowledge inspires me. It’s nice to be able to give back the knowledge that I have acquired over the years. It’s been rewarding seeing the growth of Saint Andrews, having worked for the founders and now working closely with their children, Adam Joell and Chloe Smith.

I enjoy the fast-paced environment of this industry. Applying my mind to the different products and their structures is an exciting part of my day. As well as the intricacies of submitting and processing of each of these products. I’m always acquiring knowledge from each of the products through the insurers and their offerings.

Healthcare and Employee Benefits Manager
I have been advising on medical aid for 13 years. It’s definitely an industry I am passionate about and have an in-depth understanding of. I love being able to advise and guide people as to the workings of a medical aid and also to the changes that take place each year in this very volatile environment. Being an independent advisor enables me to look at all the different companies and plans available and advise accordingly.
