About CiCi - our founder

I grew up in a small town in the American south. My childhood, although filled with love, was a bit rocky. My parents divorced and my mom was diagnosed with a terminal illness when I was a young teenager. My world was changed forever.

Although I had only 19 years with her, she taught me to appreciate the small things, to love fiercely, never compromise my values, and always have compassion.

My purpose is to ensure that my clients never have to go through what my family did when my mom was sick. The lack of financial planning (wills, LPAs, etc) meant that an already harrowing time for us was made so much worse, and I don't want anyone else to experience that.

I moved to the UK in 2017 and founded Brilliant Estate Planning in 2018 for this exact purpose. I believe that estate planning doesn't have to be boring or dull, and my unique balance of compassion, humour and innovative approach set me apart in this industry.

About Rachel


I’m a Virtual Assistant and Social Media Wizard, and set up my business back in August 2020 in order to help small business owners with their admin and be their business bestie.

I’ve got a varied employment history due to being a Military Spouse, so running my own business has been the perfect solution, especially getting to help incredible business owners, just like CiCi! I get to use my ridiculous attention to detail, organisational skills and techy knowledge I’ve gained from being a geek for the last 20 years. I love what I do, and it shows!

I help CiCi with her admin for Brilliant Estate Planning, so you’ll probably get some emails from me about taking your details, as well as any queries that you have. This helps your response times be much quicker and adds to the quality service that CiCi provides.

In my spare time I love board gaming, Dungeons & Dragons and listening to BTS, along with going on adventures with my son and husband.
