Updated: Mar 31
1. What do you do at Empower Funding?
I am the Client Manager at Empower Funding. Day to day I process and follow up with our clients to help them get their money, now!
I assist our clients with paperwork and answer any questions regarding bridging finance. I am there to make the process quick and easy.
2. What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
I have a passion for helping our furry friends (dogs and cats) so I try to get people to donate food, blankies and toys to our animal shelters.
I also work on weekends at a vet shop to help clients with their animals to be healthy and happy. In that way I can also promote helping our furry friends. I love spending time with my dog, family and friends, the most important things in my life!
3. If you could pick up a new skill in an instant what would it be?
Playing the violin and piano.
4. Seen any good movies/series lately you’d recommend?
Series: Charmed, Zombie, Grey's Anatomy, Legacies, Gotham. Movies: The Last Witch Hunter, Home Again, Ant-Man and The Wasp.
5. What was the first thing you bought with your own money?
I bought my first double bed.
6. What’s something you want to do in the next year that you’ve never done before?
I want to go to Bali or on a boat cruise.
7. What was the best concert you ever attended?
Ed Sheeran in Cape Town. I loved it so much! Next one will be Celine Dion! 😁
8. Where’s your favorite place in the world?
I would say Cape Town and Port Elizabeth as I am still to travel the world and see new places.
9. What’s the last book you read?
10. What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Eating a cow eye, a worm (not cooked) and drank sour milk with raw egg in it!
Bonus question: What is something people in your industry have to deal with that you want to fix?
I think that clients don't fully understand the process of getting the guarantees issued and how important it is to be able to bridge.
So I would like to make it easier for our clients to understand how important this is for us to be able to proceed with the bridge loan.
