Happy, humourous and honest are the three words Natalie Collison thinks her colleagues would use to describe her.
The mother of three small children loves the flexibility of her role at Valorium Advisors and the passionate support she gets from the team.
Her role revolves around the running of Valorium Advisors, to ensure her team mates are able to focus on clients. This means every day is different and she gets to wear a huge range of ‘hats’ as Practice Manager.
A huge lover of travel, a favourite way to spend her free time is holidaying with her family, especially at Christmas. Her destination of choice? “New York – every time!” is the definitive answer from this former travel consultant.
Natalie lives by the Audrey Hepburn saying, “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!” which for this breast cancer survivor rings true.
She thinks the movie character Bridget Jones best depicts her life “just with two more kids!” and she’s another in the Valorium team that would happily watch Love Actually on repeat.
Her favourite TV show is Have you been paying attention! and she’d like to share a meal with The Queen, TV presenter Carrie Bickmore and NZ Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
She’s happy to listen to everything from Andrea Bocelli to Ed Sheeran and Natalie is a sucker for a good seafood linguine.
Fun fact – Natalie once won a car!
