Diane has worked within administration roles since leaving school in 1984. Prior to working at AFL Financial Strategies Ltd she was at a banking organisation. Whilst she enjoyed helping customers achieve their financial goals or assisting them out of a pickle, as time went on she found the role became less client orientated and more sales orientated, so decided to leave. Following a chance conversation, Diane joined AFL in 2006 where the difference was immediately clear in that they were, and always will be client orientated.
Over time, Diane has enjoyed many roles at AFL as it has evolved. This has included supporting both AFL and its clients through various industry changes and becoming appointed representatives of St. James's Place Wealth Management. Her current role is based around client servicing and involves preparing reports and information in preparation for client meetings and supporting colleagues in the main office to ensure complete client satisfaction.
Diane feels fortunate and grateful that she works within a team that supports each other and grows stronger as time goes by. A testament to this is when her elderly parents started to require more care. Unfortunately, her father passed away in 2015 but technology advancement and the generosity of the AFL Directors, has allowed her to work from home, which is where she has been based since 2011.
When Diane manages to allow herself some down time, she enjoys immersing herself in a good book and being on the North Norfolk coast allows the opportunity to walk around the Sandringham woods and surrounding coastline.
