Our Team

Melanie Smith

Adviser Support

Hi, my name is Melanie, I am a true Southlander who has had periods of living and working away from Invercargill. I have come from a Motel management and administrative background. In my spare time, I enjoy seeing the sites of Southland and beyond. I enjoy travelling on overseas holidays and cleaning my classic cars ready for car shows. One of my greatest achievements would be navigating a motel through covid times. I was there to support Kiwis and tourists to make their holiday or work stay as stressless and as happy as possible. I felt if I could make someone laugh my job was almost done. It was personally rewarding; it gave me true meaning and purpose. I wanted to find a career in Southland that aligned with my passion of helping and supporting others. Lifetime has given me that opportunity and has been fantastic in supporting me in the continuation of being able to provide support to my team members and clients.

Kaeley Georgel

Hi there. I am Kaeley, born and bred in Southland. I have been working with Lifetime since 2009. I enjoy my work and sharing light-hearted moments with my team every now and then. I believe in a healthy lifestyle, leisurely weekends and of course, occasional indulgence in food and shopping! I am passionate about helping our clients getting through their everyday life challenges and hurdles. I like to see our clients recognize our assistance and help in achieving their financial goals on a daily basis.

Caitlin Patterson

Group & Employee Benefits Support / Adviser Support

Born and raised in the mighty Invercargill, I started my working life in the customer service industry. This is where I first found my passion and strength for customer service, I enjoy speaking to people and helping them with what they need. I have a good sense of humour and like to keep the days upbeat and full of fun. In my spare time you can find me running my own wee side hustle / business as a makeup artist & beauty therapist, hanging out with my dog or in more recent times renovating mine and my partner’s home.
