Viv graduated with a degree in Mathematics and Management from UMIST in 2001. She joined Barnett Waddingham in 2002 and qualified as a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries in 2008.
Viv’s career was focused on CMI-related work when she first joined the team. She moved across to the Insurance Consulting Practice in 2012, gaining wider experience of the insurance market and exposure to the regulatory requirements, risks and challenges faced by the market before resuming her focus on longevity analysis.
Outside of work Viv enjoys keeping fit and trying new activities. She enjoys running and has done a number of half marathons. In 2019, she completed her first (sprint) triathlon and has continued to train in running, open water swimming and cycling. The next activity on the list is stand-up paddle boarding. Viv is keen to be outdoors and loves to go camping with her family, recently hiring a VW campervan and touring round Cornwall and Devon, visiting as many beaches as possible on the way.
