Banking was a chosen career for Amanda and as well as being a Farmer, she has worked with National Bank, ANZ, Trust-Bank and Westpac, finishing her career as Branch Manager in Commercial branches with 30+ staff. Amanda won several awards during this time for her customer service skills and her leadership skills warranted her being asked to speak at Women in Banking Conferences.

Amanda decided it was time for change and in 2010 started her own Business in Training and Development. She also spent several years freelancing in the not for profit industry to assist Charities with fundraising and sponsorship strategies.

More recently Amanda was given the opportunity to step back into the financial industry - working as a Mortgage Broker, specialising in new build home loans for clients completing homes under construction.

Amanda completed her Financial Adviser Papers Level 5 in 2016/2017 and joined First Rate Mortgages in July 2017.

Amanda lives in the Orewa township with her Partner Tony and her youngest son Reuben. In what spare time she has, she enjoys sailing on their 13m Yacht TIME – catching up with friends, spending time with family and walking the beautiful Orewa Beach.
