A bit about me

Ensuring that children remain safe whilst in education is at the heart of what I do. As a Chartered Legal Executive, clients can rely on my expertise to support them with issues relating to pupils and/or parents.

I am passionate about the importance of child safeguarding and child protection and ensuring that safe systems are in place to protect both pupils and staff. My experience includes representing parents and/or carers of children with Special Educational Needs in SENDIST appeals to the First Tier Tribunal. Having advised on issues relating to disability discrimination, admission and exclusion appeals and negligence matters, I understand the importance of helping schools to provide the highest standards.

Outside work, I enjoy all things active – from outdoor adventures with my children and dog to keeping fit in the gym.
