Me in a minute

It gives me a real sense of purpose when I see the positive impact I can make

Although my degree was in Accounting, I quickly learned that I was more interested in people than numbers. So I’ve dedicated my career to working with and for great people, who are passionate about making their team and firm a great place to work. I’m new into law, and what I love about it is the ability to have an influence over colleagues development and careers - it gives me a real sense of purpose when I can see the positive impact I can make.
