Quick fire questions;
If you weren’t a solicitor, what would you be doing? I would probably be utilising my business management degree, working in marketing as this is something I always enjoyed. If I had my time again and I could retrain I would probably go into interior or garden design as this is something I enjoy doing in my spare time.
When you were younger, what was your dream job? My dream job when I was younger was to work in the travel industry, probably as a Pilot. I grew up close to Gatwick Airport and spent a lot of time travelling so I think this really influenced me at the time. However, when I realised that you didn’t get to spend much time in each destination and it was not like a holiday, it soon put me off.
Favourite part of doing your job? My favourite part of my job is being able to help clients to understand a complex area of law and to help them to achieve a positive outcome in what is usually a difficult and highly emotive situation. It is important to listen to what a client has been through, to consider what they are trying to achieve and using my knowledge of employment law to see if an outcome is achievable and realistic. Employment Law is fast paced and is constantly developing; it is important to consider everything a client has told you and I often find myself having to think outside of the box.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work? I enjoy travelling the world, experiencing different cultures and spending time catching up with friends and family. However, due to Covid most of these have not been possible and so I have been spending time decorating my house and landscaping the garden.
