What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

As a young child I was fascinated by courts, barristers and TV programmes about the law in general. After studying law at university I considered joining the police but soon realised working night shifts was not for me!

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I enjoy being able to support people through challenging times. As a lawyer you have many opportunities to showcase all sides of your personality from the tough negotiator through to the sympathetic friend and confidante.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Irwin Mitchell enables me to offer a holistic service to all clients which is not just restricted to my subject area. The expertise within the firm also allows me to advise in greater detail on aspects of my cases involving businesses, trusts, complex property issues and so on.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I am a mother-of-three so understand the challenges of family life. I sit on the Board of Trustees of a local nursery and whenever possible, I try to find time to keep fit and enjoy time outdoors away from a desk. I enjoy travel and spending time at our little wooden chalet in the Austrian Alps.
