I am white British and moved to London in 2000 from my native South Africa. I went to independent and state schools in South Africa, and read history and psychology at the University of Cape Town.
I started my career as a clothing buyer and after moving to the UK managed investment qualifications for the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investments.
I spent five years at the Financial Services Authority in learning and development and managed business development for the talent and careers services at the Financial Skills Partnership. I joined Investment2020 as Managing Director in 2014.
I am married, my husband is a solicitor and we have two children.
