Tell us about your career.

I am an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx). Before I began my legal career I worked for a number of years for a large bank. I joined Bookers & Bolton at the beginning of 2015 working in the Private Client department, dealing primarily with Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and the administration of estates.

What do you offer the clients of Bookers & Bolton?
I believe that our clients want us to set realistic expectations, in particular with respect to the timescales involved in each matter. I pride myself on keeping in regular contact with clients, to keep them informed of progress and to ensure that I deal with matters proactively.

Tell us about you.

What are your earliest memories? 
Holidays with my family in the south of France
What was your first job?
Whilst studying at South Downs College I worked weekends at the Fox & Hounds pub in Denmead.
What is your favourite film or TV programme?
My favourite film is “The Holiday”
Name something you love doing and why.
I love going for rideouts as a pillion on motorcycles. I enjoy the adrenaline rush of the ride but being pillion you have the added bonus of taking in the spectacular views of the South Coast.
What do you dislike most?
Laziness
What country would you most like to visit and why?
I would like to go to Ireland because my nan came from there and I would like to trace her history and drink a pint of Guinness in her honour.
What are your personal ambitions?
I would like to complete my CILEx training and graduate within the next two years. I would also like to take my full bike test.
