What inspired you to get into law?
I was inspired by a talk from lawyers when I was a journalist. I realised law was a career that would use my brain and keep me challenged as it constantly changes.
What Is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Working with clients to get them the right outcome so that they can move forward, engaging all necessary stakeholders along the way. I really enjoy hearing about the different businesses our clients run and seeing how we can help get them to the next stage of their business adventure.
What do you do away from work/outside the office?
I like to be busy. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing sport, travelling, reading, making the most of London's culture and developing my interest in the wonderful world of fragrance. I enjoy voluntary work, including speaking to schools through the national charity Inspiring the Future, and local initiatives involving disadvantaged people.
