As a member of Resolution, an organisation of family lawyers committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes, she will always explore all potential options with clients who are facing relationship breakdown and its consequences.

She then began her career in a local firm in Kent, where she was accredited by the Law Society for her work in Family Law before expanding her practice area by moving to a Central London Legal 500 firm where she continued to have a large Kent following before moving to Stowe.
