I qualified as a Solicitor in November 2012 after completing my training at Buckles which included working in our Private Client, Dispute Resolution and Company Commercial departments. Prior to that, I studied law at the University of Southampton and the College of Law in London.

I’m currently studying for the ACTAPS (Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists) Associate Membership course which I hope to complete by September 2020.
I also have previous experience working with legal teams in two local authorities, including whilst on secondment from Buckles.

When I’m not doing that, I am a Community First Responder for the East of England Ambulance Service, responding to 999 medical emergencies in my local area and increasing awareness of early CPR and the use of publicly accessible AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators).
