Me in a minute

I am an international hockey umpire

Outside of work, I am an international hockey umpire with 25 senior caps representing England & Great Britain. I umpired at the 2022 Junior World Cup in South Africa and the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in the summer before joining Withers. Umpiring elite hockey has given me great transferable skills including leadership, teamwork and thriving under pressure – all of which I hope will continue to serve me well in my legal career.
