Meet Glowsure’s Operations Executive
Tell us a bit about yourself
I’m a real family girl who likes fresh coffee, rhinos and good conversation. I’m a deep thinker and enjoy learning and pondering, although I’m not averse to the superficial things in life (did someone say shiny new shoes?!).
How did you start in Insurance?
Insurance is in my blood and I definitely started young. My grandfather set up his own broking business in 1966 an my dad took over in 1990. I used to work in the office during school holidays (I’m not sure how helpful I actually was but I learnt a lot). I left college and tried university (several times) but I was on a piece of elastic and kept coming back to what I knew, so I decided to stick with it.
What three words would you use to describe yourself?
A typical Gemini.
Who or what inspires you?
Authentic people who carve their own path, create their own success, accept and celebrate others and aren’t afraid to own their mistakes.
What would you most like to achieve in life?
Balance, growth and meaningful relationships.
What gets you enthused about getting up and coming to work every morning?
Working with really special people who each bring something awesome to the team and make working in insurance more fun that it ought to be.
If you didn’t love working at Glowsure so much and you won the lottery what would you do?
I love learning about and understanding others, so I’d do something like behavioural coaching. It would be great to help others develop, although I would need to tone down my bossiness and let others find their own way with some gentle guidance.
If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?
Super speed reading. There are so many interesting books out there and so much to learn but I never manage to finish a book. To be able to absorb the contents of a book in mega quick time would be brilliant.
Tell us one interesting/weird fact about yourself
I walked 200 miles from coast to coast with my Dad in 2011. Lots of sheep, blisters and ale; the scenery was pretty awesome too.
What three famous people (dead or alive) would you invite to a dinner party?
Sir David Attenborough, Elizabeth I and JK Rowling.
What do you like doing when not in office?
I’m a real homebird and am happiest spending time with my beautiful family. Aside from that, I like to walk; it’s meditation for me.
