Which one word do you think your colleagues would use to describe you?
What was the first job you had?
I have worked from an early age and had a number of different jobs including washing cars, a paper round, pot washing at a Hotel, picking & packing at Empire Stores, stacking shelves at Asda, and serving Fish & Chips at Wetherby Whaler! All of which have taught me a number of valuable lessons and skills which stand me in good stead now including hard work, customer service, and the value of money.
What inspired you to work in the legal sector?
I never aspired to be a solicitor. I have always been encouraged to do what I enjoy and be the best that I can be. I enjoy sport (in particular football and tennis) and have a Sports Science degree. I anticipated analysing and improving the performance of athletes but whilst looking for a future in Sports Science I started working at Chadwick Lawrence and 17 years on I have worked my way up from office junior to Partner.
