My achievements and other appointments

I was brought up in Edinburgh, and I qualified as a Scottish Solicitor in 2007 after studying law at Edinburgh University and having trained at a top law firm in the City. I moved to Brighton in 2007, became fully English qualified and gained excellent experience at Thomas Eggar.  I then took a career break to have my two wonderful children and happily settled in to Coole Bevis LLP in February 2016.

...and finally

My young family keeps me very busy outside of work, but I am an avid gym goer. This stems from my earlier basketball history of playing for Scotland as well as playing semi-professionally in the Women’s English Division 1.
