I enjoy my duties and enjoy interacting with clients.  Working here has given me confidence in my business abilities.

My passion is my marriage and two wonderful children.  I am a fashion freak, always intrigued by the latest styles.  I like good music and enjoy a relaxing weekend with family.

S033 - Chartered WebsiteThey say that when you have a purpose in life the platform to success is laid firm but it is when your work values and your personal values share commonality that platform becomes a catapult.

I am passionate about fulfilling my duties with the same values and integrity that I hold in my personal life. I consider it a pleasure to serve our clients and an honour to be part of the John Burnett family.

I have been in the industry for 25 years and feel our greatest endorsement is the generations of clients we have served.

In my spare time I am a passionate baker and cook, I am an avid reader but my most passionate and treasured purpose is that of being an adoring grandmother, wife and mother.

My present duties entail insurance administration and underwriting commercial accounts. I am excited at having joined the John Burnett family.

S022 - Chartered WebsiteI joined the Burnett Group 2 years ago, bringing with me a set of values, work ethics and experience garnered from 22 years in the insurance industry.  I am proud to be part of this team and together we have given a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘service excellence’.  We are geared to give our clients nothing short of the very best service, always aspiring to John’s original vision for this company.

Intelligent communication, combined with empathy and knowledge is the fibre which binds people together and by placing knowledgeable people with similar goals, visions and work ethics together in a team is the cornerstone of success.  It is a pleasure working in an environment where synergy and understanding between our valued clients and staff members, despite the adverse economic climate, is the order of the day.  Our clients have become part of the family and continue to entrust  us with their portfolios, because of our expertise and commitment to service.

The great passions of my life other than business are art, literature and music.
