Me in a minute
I always knew that I wanted to work with innovative, ambitious entrepreneurs
I always knew that I wanted to work with innovative, ambitious entrepreneurs after having watched Levi Roots' pitch on Dragons Den whilst studying at university. His passion for his idea was infectious, and I wanted to channel that passion into helping my clients thrive on their journeys transforming creative ideas into high-growth enterprises.
Approachable, focused and enthusiastic, I provide clear, concise and commercial advice that extends across a broad range of corporate, investment, commercial and IP work. My knowledge of the early-stage and technology sectors, coupled with the strong relationships I build with my clients, allows me to put the specific needs of their businesses first. I am always proud when clients regard me as an extension of their internal team.
In my spare time, I am a Girl Guide in my local village and love nothing more than singing around a campfire!
