She now has a place on the Board of Directors at the CISI and is involved in the continuing development of Financial Planning in the UK. This is a role that she sees as being very important to promote the benefits of Holistic planning and lifetime cashflow planning, alongside the role of the Certified Financial Planner license as a benchmark for quality Financial Planning and advice.  She has also previously been the UK member on the international council of the Financial Planning Standards Board.
