Senior Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management


Prue Ockenden, Mortgage & Protection Adviser

I joined The Michelle Sheppard Practice in 2019 with a goal of offering clients a fast and efficient Mortgage and Protection advice service. I have always had a passion for providing the best advice for my clients so that they can achieve their financial plans.

I have over 12 years’ experience in the financial services industry. Since working at St. James’s Place I have loved the client led environment, where your priorities are our priorities.

In my spare time I love to be out in the countryside, specifically the New Forest, with my husband and two children.



Amanda Patch, Adviser

Having worked in financial services for over twenty five years I have been with the Michelle Sheppard Practice for five years now. My experience encompasses a broad range of sectors including Investment Management, Life Assurance and Banking. I enjoy the varied nature of the industry however the most rewarding aspect has always been dealing with clients on a day to day basis.

I am married with two children, and in my spare time I enjoy music, theatre, cycling and the unyielding challenges of allotment gardening!



Ginni Cole, Marketing Manager

I have 20 years experience working within St. James’s Place. I was delighted to join The Michelle Sheppard Practice Ltd in 2014, to help Michelle with her Marketing activities and arranging of our client hospitality events, as well as helping to arrange her client appointments. This ensures that Michelle can spend more time face to face with her clients, which is the cornerstone of her approach.

In my spare time my partner and I, along with our three children, enjoy spending time with our families and friends and walking along the beautiful South Coast with our dog, Summer.
