“ I’m an estate administrator, I deal with all aspects of deceased estates. The most rewarding part of my role is simply helping people. I know from personal experience the trauma of losing a loved one. It’s not uncommon for people’s lives to unravel at a time like this, and for them to go through a rollercoaster of emotions. I can empathise, and I’m here to assist them. I know it can be emotionally overwhelming, and my passion is to help them through it, on a personal and a practical level. I gain satisfaction from helping people who are going through that difficult period, so that they can move on to a new chapter in their lives. ”
