What made you go into law?

A combination of factors. Firstly, I studied Law A-level at college and found the course fascinating. My interest continued to grow whilst studying my Law degree. Secondly, I wanted to do something which would enable me to use my skills to help others.  Thirdly, the opportunity to be a part of something which in one way or another, has an impact on our daily lives.

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

I joined Boyes Turner in March 2022 as an Associate. I specialise in Community Care, Special Educational Needs and Mental Capacity Law. I support parents, carers, young people, adults, attorneys, lay and professional deputies, trustees, case managers, financial advisors, educational settings and charities with navigating the maze of statutory entitlements and protections. 

My aim is to ensure that the cared for person and their family receive the right level of support to meet all of their education, health and social care needs.

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

Making a difference to often some of the most vulnerable people in our society. I have a genuine passion for protecting fundamental rights and ensuring that people are not left 'in the dark' when it comes to the issue of what they, or their loved ones, are entitled to receive from statutory services. I am a great believer that knowledge is power. Knowing where to start can be the most daunting task when the need for support arises. I am looking forward to working with the excellent team of legal experts at Boyes Turner to enhance the depth of service I provide to my clients.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work I love to be outdoors, enjoying the world around me. I regularly run, cycle, hike and paddle board with my wonderful husband. Recently we completed the Randonnee (Round the Isle of Wight cycle ride), which was over 100km of cycling in a day. Safe to say I was a tad saddle sore the next day! I equally enjoy cooking, baking, good food and a glass of something lovely with friends and family.

What is your favourite food?

This is a difficult question to answer because I have so many favourite dishes. I simply cannot decide.
