LEADING LADY IN FINTECH

What's your story? What drew you to FinTech?

I was in a totally different industry before I moved to Planswell and honestly, I hadn’t really heard the term before. But what I loved about Planswell was how it was a service and product I actually believed could help people. I had become passionate about personal finance after experiencing some finance struggles myself and so Planswell’s mission really spoke to me. Add in the fact that they were using technology to make it even easier and more foolproof - I was hooked.


What makes FinTech an exciting area to build your career in?

It’s always changing - it’s a super dynamic industry to work in. Because we have to keep up with technology, there’s always something new to learn and I never feel like I’m becoming stagnant in my career.


What do you think are some of the most exciting FinTech trends likely to influence the Financial Services industry?

When people think of FinTech trends, usually terms like Blockchain and AI come to mind, but for me I think of collaboration. There are so many exciting FinTech companies out there and I think over the next little while, collaboration is going to play a big part in those companies growth as well as influencing the industry in general.
