- How long have you been at Bestmed?
I started on 1 July 2020, so almost a full year at Bestmed!
- What encouraged you to join Bestmed?
Initially, the drive was a new and exciting employment offer. However, what has kept me at Bestmed are the charitable initiatives for the local communities, the family-orientated environment and prosperous opportunity for growth. Bestmed has really made me feel as though I am part of a team, where my contributions are always justly considered.
- What is the best thing about your job?
Going out and meeting with our financial advisors has always been an exciting venture for me, and I thoroughly enjoy our business discussions, as well as the shared personal stories and experiences.
- Give us a short bio about your career history.
My career started at Liberty within a broker consulting franchise. This is where my foundation in the industry was built, and I learnt about the importance of excellent customer service and broker relations. The need for a change of scenery then led me to strengthening my foundation and putting myself in the advisors’ shoes by becoming a registered financial planner and wealth manager. This is where I understood the importance of client retention, financial need analysis and providing the correct advice to my clients.
My move to Bestmed allowed me to take this foundation and build a solid home, where I now reside and use my experience to build excellent advisor relations and expand the Personally Yours brand.
- Do you have any special or hidden skills?
I have been told that I have a voice for radio, and you might have heard it on TuksFM or other Bestmed advertisements.
- Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
During lockdown in 2020, I managed to lose a whopping 17 kilograms. No banana bread for me!
- What are your hobbies?
I’m an amateur artist; emphasis on the “amateur.” I also love to play electric guitar from time to time, and I’m an avid gym bunny.
- What is something – a food or activity – that you tried reluctantly, and it turns out you like it?
I don’t typically try anything reluctantly. I always tend to jump in head first, especially when it comes to food.
- What part of your daily routine do you look forward to every day?
I always look forward to cooking a nutritious meal at the end of the day, followed by an intense gym session.
- What is your favourite motto?
Life isn’t picture-perfect. We use the negatives to develop.
