Katie said: "This is an amazing award to have won. Last year the winner worked for the Bank of England, so for me to be recognised as part of a small business was amazing and a great honour.
"I became a mentor through my ebn Group and the connections I made. This has been a really rewarding experience for me.
"I have been a member of the ebn Southend Group for several years and everyone has been so supportive. It's great to be able to share our success with other businesses and know that they are genuinely happy for us."
Group Director for Southend ebn Sally Laking, of Sally Laking Wealth Management, said: "Our members meet on alternate Tuesdays at the Arlington Rooms . We were delighted to hear Katie's good news.
"The whole Group enjoy celebrating each other's achievements, and we wish Katie continued success as a mentor."
