Short bio:

I am an associate solicitor, specialising in strategic land, residential development, and general commercial property matters. I qualified in January 2017 at another regional law firm, joining Lodders in May 2023.

In my role, I act for a wide range of clients, including individuals, commercial and residential developers, charities, and affordable housing providers. The aspect of my role that I most enjoy is seeing the progression of a development site. It is very satisfying to witness a site completely transform and to know that your involvement helped to achieve that.

Outside of work, I have taken part in a number of half-marathons, raising money for charities.

I am chair of the Coventry & Warwickshire First Young Professionals Leadership Team. Within this position, I work with fellow members to organise events and promote the interests of young professionals in the region.

I am also a qualified PADI advanced open water diver.

I am based in Stratford upon Avon
