The Mortgage Broker (Eaton Socon)
Personal Information: I started out my working life in Telecoms – nearly 20 years in total. Redundancy led me to look for a change in direction and I’ve been in the mortgage world ever since. I live in Cambridgeshire with my Cockapoo, Jenny, and 4 talkative Lovebirds!
Something not everyone knows about me: I took a year off between mobile phone networks and went to Guatemala where I taught indigenous children for 3 months in Spanish. It was a great challenge especially as I couldn’t speak a word of Spanish when I arrived. I then spent 3 months in Argentina where I learnt to ski.
If I won the Euro millions lottery I would:
Clear the mortgage, help some friends and family out and then have a really big holiday!!!
First Full time job: Working at Vodafone as a Fraud Control Engineer, back in the days of mobile phone cloning, which involved identifying how fraudsters were de-frauding the network and then finding ways to stop them. I remember the day in Vodafone where we celebrated the millionth ever (!!) SMS being sent.
I love my job because: No two days are ever the same, and there’s no better feeling than to be able to help someone achieve their goals – particularly if they’ve been told what they want isn’t possible.
