I started working for Lapage Norris Sons & Saleby, a predecessor firm of Redkite Solicitors incorporating Phoenix Legal Group, in 2001.
I initially worked as receptionist and administration clerk supporting the Wills & Probate and Residential Conveyancing Departments. I later joined the Wills & Probate Department in a support role.
Since 2011 I have specialised in Court of Protection and Lasting Power of Attorney applications. This includes managing day-to-day the financial affairs of some clients who have appointed the firm to act as attorneys.
I understand the difficult situation when a family member is diagnosed with mental incapacity or unable to manage their affairs for other reasons and am mindful to support and guide my clients in a sensitive way through the legal process.
My previous employment includes working as a receptionist and administration support for Social Services, in the accounts department for a home for Autistic Adults, and as a BT operator.
My hobbies are cooking and gardening but my ultimate pleasure is my family, especially time with my grandchildren and pet dog Marley.
