Areas of interest/expertise

industry specific compliance and regulation – solicitors are highly regulated and compliance with those regulations is a time consuming and complex area

Personal interests and hobbies

Cycling is primary hobby but I have combined this with swimming and running to take up triathlons. I also do a lot of hill walking. I have been doing increasing amounts of fund raising in my spare time.

I am also a parent governor at a local academy and I have been Scout & Guide Group secretary for a number of years. I have recently joined the committee of the Worcester Rugby Business Network

Greatest sporting moment – Being a founder member of Worcester Womens Rugby team (now known as the Valkiries) 25 years ago and seeing the team progress to the premiership.
