Me in a minute

Law has long been an interest of mine so I was delighted when the opportunity came up to work at Withers

I began working at Withers a few months after I finished my A levels back in 2014, having decided I didn’t want to go to university. Law has long been an interest of mine so I was delighted when the opportunity came up to work at Withers.

Outside of work I’m always seeking out the latest stories from the political world. I also play several musical instruments and am a huge music fan – I’m sharp on just about anything to do with The Beatles! More recently I’ve found a passion for genealogy, discovering the trials and tribulations of my family history.
