What career did you see yourself going into when you were at school?
“Well, I had lots of ideas but the two ideas I followed included being a Lawyer or a Spanish Teacher.”
What are your hobbies?
“When I have a spare moment away from my two children I enjoy running, a good book and just generally being outdoors, whether in a country park or down at the beach.”
Your go-to coffee order?
“Americano with skimmed milk.”
What would be your advice to law students trying to build a career in law?
“Persevere. Try to gain as much experience as possible and make sure you find a practice area you enjoy and a firm which helps you grow.”
