What made you go into law?

When I was at school I knew that I wanted to ‘see’ the world but I also had a very strong sense of justice and desire to help people who were treated unfairly and whose voices were not heard. So, I joined an airline and travelled the world for over 20 years whilst volunteering at Citizens Advice and finally completing my law degree in 2015. I feel very privileged to have been able to fulfill my passions and finally qualify as a solicitor in 2020.

When did you join Boyes Turner and what is your role?

I joined Boyes Turner in April 2022 and I am a solicitor in the Court of Protection Team.

In my role, I assist the Deputy with the day-to-day management of the property and financial affairs of our clients, who have suffered significant brain injuries as a result of medical negligence or personal injury and are deemed to lack mental capacity to deal with their affairs.

What do you like most about/what are you most looking forward to in your new role?

What I like most about working in this field is making a tangible and positive difference to the lives of our clients and their families who have been and are going through some very difficult and challenging times in their lives.

I strongly believe that people who lack mental capacity should be assisted in any way possible to participate in decision making, big or small, like buying a property to fit their needs or subscribe to a streaming service to watch their favourite programmes.

I am really looking forward to continuing getting to know and assisting my clients and their families and to working with such talented and passionate colleagues in the Court of Protection Team.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I grew up in a skiing resort and I have skied since I was 4 years old but running has always been my real passion. I have run several marathons around the world and although I stopped long distance running a few years ago, I now feel that is time to start again and complete a few more...watch this space.

What is your favourite food?

Nutella sandwiches.
