Partner, Wills, Trusts & Probate

I am a Partner in the Private Client department based in the Hailsham office of Barwells since January 2017. Prior to this I worked in our Eastbourne office for nine years.     

I grew up in Eastbourne and attended Bedes Prep school and Bedes Upper Dicker in Hailsham.  Since joining Barwells I studied to become a Legal Executive; graduating in May 2015 and became Partner in February 2022

I aim to offer a professional yet friendly service and her Specialist areas include:-

Wills, Administration of Estates,  Care Home and Asset Protection planning, Creation of Lasting Powers of Attorney,  Registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney, Management of client's affairs, Court of Protection,  Administration of Trusts and Trust Registration. I frequently complete a variety of complex Wills and Estate Planning for owners of Agricultural land in the Sussex area and work with high net worth Estates and Inheritance Tax.

I am always happy to have a no obligation telephone conversation or appointment and our glass fronted office in the centre of Hailsham town welcomes clients to call in and see a member of our team at their convenience. 

I am a registered Dementia Friend with the Alzheimer's Society who aim to change the way that dementia is talked about and understood.

I am also a keen supporter of local charities and am actively involved with St Wilfrid's Hospice, both in and out of work and try to take part in events to raise funds for the Samaritans annually. I was fortunate to win the ‘Readers Choice’ and highly commended for ‘Contribution to the Community’ at the East Sussex Women in Business awards 2017.
