Of A '

Why '!

manager at a commercial bank . Seven years later , I am now more focused as a leader in the Sales & Client Relations division at a Wealth Management Institution . Personal development is my calling . By personal development I mean , helping to transform the lives of others . I feel a sense of satisfaction watching the younger generation find their calling and excelling in their roles . I get up motivated most days with great enthusiasm about doing my job .
I am a fanatic lover of nature . I love flowers ( no , I do not have a green thumb ), but I enjoy trying to grow them . I relish the sound of waves crashing or water moving ; I find it very relaxing , and so my perfect day is reading an enjoyable book at the beach . I am not a city girl , so I travel to a remote location to immerse myself in nature . I also enjoy mentoring the young ladies at my alma mater , St . Andrew High School .
