Q: Favourite quote:

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi


Q: What are the problems with the Family Law sector that you want to fix?

A: One of the main issues I see in the Family Law sector is the lack of access to funding for individuals when assets are tied up in the marriage. This can lead to further stress for families during an already difficult time. I aim to work towards increasing awareness and knowledge of our services to help these individuals via our partner network.


Q: What attracted you to Ampla Finance?

A: Ampla’s commitment to innovation and customer-centric approach in providing financial services is what drew me to the company. I was also impressed by the company’s values & culture, and the opportunity to make a real impact in the sector through our Family Law product.


Q: How have you found your first months at Ampla Finance?

A: It’s been a great experience so far! I’ve been welcomed with open arms by my colleagues, and I’m excited to be a part of such a dedicated team. I feel fortunate to be able to work towards a common goal of improving financial outcomes for families.


Q: Can you share your plans and ambitions for Ampla’s Family product in the coming years?

In its simplest form we provide unsecured bridging finance. From my time in banking bridging loans are generally associated with commercial lending, but this is a consumer space.

Ampla are determined to make their proposition consumer friendly and will lead the market with more accessible lending and easy to understand products. We recognise that going through a divorce is emotionally and financially exhausting, Often our borrowers are vulnerable, and we can help them with easy to understand products that use easy to digest language.

So in answer to your question, I am determined to make Ampla’s Family product more consumer-friendly. Ampla are committed to responsible lending and have most recently removed their arrangement fee for all new loan applications. This USP is designed to make our proposition easier to understand and more akin to personal and consumer finance. The change is the first of many that will separate us from competition.


Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

A: I would love to visit Japan. I’m fascinated by the country’s rich culture, history, and beauty. I also hope to explore the cities and countryside, try the delicious food, and experience the unique way of life.


Q: And finally, what do you like to do away from Ampla?

A: Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, creative arts, and teaching Pilates. I also love to travel and discover new cultures, cuisines, and landscapes.
