I have worked in law since 1992 having joined David Rix at Rix McLaren Solicitors. I have represented clients in all types of cases from Road Traffic matters to Murder both at the Police Station and prepared the case through to conclusion at the Crown Court.

Rix McLaren merged with Symes Bains Broomer in 2012 and I carried on in this role. Thereafter in November 2014 I was invited to take on the responsibility of being Practice Manager too.

My current role is now focused on being the Practice Manager due to the ever increasing demands and responsibilities the position involves.

In October 2018 Symes Bains Broomer became a limited company and I was invited to be a director. As such I am a partner and practice manager of Symes Bains Broomer Limited, positions I am very proud of. Balancing the roles of running a business, maintaining quality standards and maintaining a happy bunch of staff is very demanding but equally very rewarding at times.

I take my roles very seriously. I consider myself an easy going person that will always make time for people. I treat everyone fairly and equally.

I want all the staff to enjoy their jobs and I value each of them. I want them to progress and will encourage and support all of them to be what they want to be and achieve their goal.

In my spare time I enjoy watching football, cycling, travelling, eating and trying to stay as fit as possible. Sadly some of these activities don’t go hand in hand and I enjoy some more than others!!
