Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management
Georgia started her life in London, but moved to Ilkley with her family when she was just 10 years old. A brave move by her mum and dad, with three daughters to consider, and particularly in that neither parent had jobs to go to. But a two bedroom London house, with those three daughters to accommodate meant a practical move to Yorkshire was the best solution.
An aunt and uncle in the area and the fresh air of West Yorkshire proved too much of an allure and the family soon settled into a relatively country lifestyle, whilst both of Georgia’s parents secured work in the area. Now Georgia says, “The great thing is that when we travel to London we still have somewhere to stay, with parts of the family still there.”
Georgia was enrolled into Ashlands Primary School and subsequently attended Ilkley Grammar School and Sixth Form College. “I considered applying for university to do Film and Media studies, but when I stood back from things I realised that I was just doing what all of my peers were doing. Those subjects weren’t really what I aimed for in a career. Going to the movies with my sister was a favourite pastime, but not something I saw as my future.”
Georgia spent the next three years in training to be a hairdresser and then working in fashion retail, before applying for a job with Bright Wealth Management this year as part of the Client Services Team.
“I feel that I have found a career path that I was looking for since leaving college, but the main thing is that I can learn from this start in financial services, with lots of opportunity to progress.”
With a new-found interest in Zumba, a continuing love of films, her pets and the Ilkley countryside, Georgia is enjoying life and the first steps in her career.
