Experience

Starting my career in Oxfordshire in 1997, I have worked both smaller and large national Independent Financial Planning firms for 17 years. I trained in Birmingham with Millfield Partnership for 5 years where I obtained the majority of my financial planning qualifications. Latterly I held the position of financial planning Consultant at a large regional accountancy practice before leaving to set up Cameron and Company Financial Planning in 2010.

Areas of Expertise

Personal Information

When not at work, I can be found at home on the farm with my partner Matthew, a conservationist farmer and our 3 children, Áengus, Rupert and Cecelia. We keep 50 Dexter cattle and 350 North Country Cheviot breeding ewes, various horses and dogs. All of which keep us very happy and very busy.

I have worked in the financial services industry for over 30 years. I joined Cameron and Company in November 2013 having spent the first half of my career with one of the major high street banks and the second half with a well-respected independent financial planning company in Cheltenham. I live in Worcester and enjoy spending my spare time tending my small flock of chickens - who entertain me endlessly.

I have been working into an administration and support role within the financial services industry for over 8 years. During this period I achieved the Certificate in Financial Planning. I love working within the financial services and wish to qualify as Chartered Financial Planner in the future, I am currently studying towards the Diploma in Financial Planning.   

I like to spend my spare time with my husband or creating greeting cards. I also like to grow my own vegetables so I spend a considerable amount of time in the garden during the summer months.
