It is with the extensive experience of the finance and technology sectors and an innate passion for the benefits of Open Banking as a Service (OBaaS®) offerings that she is able to break down any resistance to trying this new technology and proactively move Open Banking into new sectors; directly influencing a wider adoption of Open Banking services in the UK.
