Meet the Authors
Bryony studied journalism at university and graduated with a first class degree. She joined Ocean Finance in September 2014 and now works as part of its content team. She brings her passion for writing and creativity to Ocean’s blog.
Outside work, she splits her time between running at her local athletics club, socialising and putting her feet up!BACK
After working with our customers to help them make financial decisions, Christine wanted to put her experience to good use and write helpful content for Ocean's readers. She was thrilled to join the team in April 2015 and has since written on all sorts of topics, from claiming back PPI to how to make the most out of your living space.
In her spare time you’re likely to find her travelling as much as possible or with her nose in a good book.BACK
During his time at University, Dan spent the summers of 2013 and 2014 as an intern with Ocean Finance. After graduating with a BA in Journalism, he joined the team permanently in 2015.
He hopes to pass on his knowledge of credit cards, loans and mortgages to you in a stripped-back, easy-to-understand manner – so you can make the right choice.
Elsewhere, he’s got a passion for music and spends his spare time soaking up the atmosphere at countless gigs and festivals, as well as discovering and blogging about exciting new music.BACK
Say hello to Emily, who joined the team in August 2014.
With a BA in Journalism, Emily is your go to writer when it comes to everything you need to know about loans, credit cards and mortgages.
Outside of work, she loves getting down to the front row and gigs and festivals, and taking city breaks to exciting places around Europe.BACK
Meet our in-house property expert - Hayley Cox.
When it comes to houses, moving and mortgages – she’s your girl. She’s a self-confessed property geek, which makes her the perfect person to be heading up our blog.
This Journalism MA graduate came to Ocean Finance in 2013 and as well as launching this blog, she’s been covering the array of news stories that you’ll find on the site.
When she's not tapping away on her keyboard, she can be found avidly perusing charity shops to bag a bargain, hanging out with Penny and Gillian (her cats!), or getting behind the camera to help her husband make music videos.BACK
Holly graduated from university in Liverpool with a degree in Criminology. But rather than kick off a life fighting crime, she decided to travel the world.
After volunteering in Cambodia and India, Holly joined Ocean in 2015 and began to hone her craft writing about property and finance.
And where would this jetsetter buy her dream home? New Zealand!BACK
Kyri joined the team at Ocean Finance fresh from university in 2014 and since then has learnt all there is to know about mortgages, loans and credit cards.
Her aim, like the rest of the Ocean team, is to inform and entertain you with the pieces that she writes. She's passionate about keeping things simple for Ocean customers, so you'll hear no jargon from Kyri!
In her spare time, you’ll find Kyri blogging about fashion, hiding away with a good book or trying out a new restaurant with friends.BACK
Linzi has been working for Ocean Finance since March 2013.
As well as writing stories for the website, it's her task to look after the video content for Ocean - and watch this space because there are plans for plenty more!
Covering everything from mortgages and loans to credit cards and insurance - like the rest of the Ocean team - Linzi is rather clued up on the world of property and finance.
When she's not working with a camera crew or behind a computer, her time is split between sports and friends. So you'll either find her getting sweaty and competitive or having a few beers with some mates down the local.BACK
Born and raised in the north of England, Rachel is actually fluent in Spanish, and taught out there for years. But she couldn’t resist the call of the north, and in 2014, Rachel moved back and bought her first property.
When she’s not sharing tips on applying for mortgages and haggling with property sellers, Rachel can be found at the gym.BACK
Sarah loves to write about all things property, so joining the Ocean team in October 2014 was a dream come true.
Sarah is mum to one-year-old Lizzy and at weekends they can usually be found in a soft play area or park in their home town of Widnes, Cheshire. They also enjoy going for long walks with their Chinese Crested dogs, Dave and Peter.
When Lizzy is asleep, Sarah likes reading chic lit and catching up on the latest celebrity gossip. She is passionate about writing and would love to write a novel one day.BACK
Shelley specialises in helping people navigate the tricky legal issues that surround the world of finance and property, such as credit ratings, how to choose the right credit product for you and what to do when it all starts to go wrong.
She likes to take complex financial issues and make them as simple as possible, firmly believing that writing in plain English is the only way forward.BACK
