Tell us a little bit about your professional background.

I formally trained as an accountant for two years before being rescued from that path by my first law firm.

Having worked in the legal environment almost entirely ever since then I have experienced almost all there is to do so in that role.


What are your key responsibilities at Leonard Gray LLP?

My role at Leonard Gray LLP is to facilitate the partners and staff to ensure they can do their jobs effectively by supporting them on a daily basis.


What key skills and expertise do you have that are ideal for your current position?

My experience of the work environment and empathy with colleagues helps me to learn what enthuses people and makes them tick, it is important to establish a rapport to get the best from everyone in the team.


Tell us a little bit about your work philosophy and approach.

The legal environment particularly the IT we utilise is constantly changing, no one can always be cutting edge but all firms need to ensure they can modernise and adapt. By mindful management, we can try and achieve that goal.


What are your main interests and hobbies outside of work?

Outside of work, I like to keep active, I walk a lot (including to the local occasionally) and cycle off-road. I also like a variety of music and love to spectate at sporting events.


Tell us a fun fact others might not know about you.

I did have a break from the legal world a time ago and managed my own BnB in Portugal for a couple of years. And in 2015 I cycled from the UK to Morocco just because I could and yes like Hannibal I had to cross the Pyrenees!!
