Quick Fire Questions…
If you weren’t a solicitor, what would you be doing? I would love to be a gardener at the Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwal, it’s a beautiful tranquil place, either that or a gin taster!
When you were younger, what was your dream job? My dream job was to be a forensic scientist and I used to love watching TV shows solving crimes. I later met one and realised how squeamish I was, so I quicky changed my mind!
Favourite part of doing your job? I find my job very rewarding and love being able to put people at ease and help them at what is often a very emotional and stressful time.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work? I enjoy dog walks, running, gardening and socialising.
