Working style

Good communication is crucial in our line of business. We are privileged to work with great clients and it’s essential that they can approach us with any queries and receive a timely response outlining their options. I love the fact that I work with approachable people who are excellent at what they do.

Beyond work

Raised to be honest and hard-working, Amanda appreciates the simple things in life. When not at work, she spends her time on the football field or heading out on adventures with her partner and Munro, their sprollie (springer spaniel/border collie cross).
