Me in a minute

I have always been fascinated by people and what makes them tick.

This is no doubt what led me to embark on a Psychology degree, but also what attracted me to the field of employment law and advising individuals and organisations on workplace relationships - from recruitment through to termination.

Work aside, I love to travel and venture off the beaten track - Northern India and Cuba are two favourites that spring to mind, but I’m always planning my next adventure. I also enjoy pilates and running, mainly to balance out my passion for cooking and discovering new restaurants.
