Born in Ashburton, New Zealand in 1970 Stephanie left secondary school at the tender age of 15. After working her way through a series of jobs (from shop assistant to Front of House at a large Hotel ) she gained a position training a group of tele-marketers to secure appointments for AA Insurance advisers. She did this so successfully that AA approached her to become one of their advisers – a role which also saw her responsible for delivering mortgage and finance solutions.
Knowing by now that her passion was with insurance, Stephanie jumped at the opportunity to secure a position in Royal Sun Alliance’s insurance division.
Many years on – (and immediately after her and her husband took their two young children on a very EXPENSIVE year-long world trip) Stephanie faced what she describes as potentially one of the worst things that’s ever happened to her – redundancy!
Transitioning from a 6 figure salary to working for myself was probably one of the most difficult and challenging periods of my life.
However, with typical tenacity, Stephanie used this life-changing event to motivate her to set up her own business – The Insurance Clinic.
