I joined PwC in 2010 having graduated from the University of Sussex with a first class degree in Mathematics with Economics.

I’ve always worked in general insurance and I learnt the basics doing audits and working on the administration of one of the largest ever non-life insurance insolvencies at the time. I was fortunate enough to work with a wonderful team of people who encouraged me to continue to grow by working on a wide variety of projects such as Part VII transfers, Mergers & Acquisitions and Schemes of Arrangement. Through this work I also became a member of the Insurance and Reinsurance Legacy Association (IRLA) which allowed me to expand my network outside of PwC.

Over the years I’ve worked with London Market insurers, Lloyd’s Syndicates, personal lines insurers and large global commercial insurance companies. This experience helped me to develop my understanding of different markets and the unique challenges faced by my clients. I was then able to better support them by tailoring my delivery on different projects, including helping clients design deal structures to take to market, assisting them with regulatory submissions and applications and helping them to realise value in their business through restructuring or commutations. I’ve always been passionate about quality and the best part of my job has been seeing the appreciation of my clients when I help them resolve their problems and overcome their challenges.

I’ve been able to share insights I’ve gained through my experience of latent insurance liabilities with the wider market. I’ve presented at the International Association of Asbestos and Pollution Reinsurers and I recently presented at the live virtual launch of the latest PwC Annual Global Run-off Survey.

I’ve also been able to take on more of a people role within PwC which has included establishing a Wellbeing Champions network within the actuarial team. Through this network I’ve managed to design and implement various workshops aimed to address resilience, mental health and understanding privilege.
