I qualified as a Solicitor in 1999. Whilst in private practice I specialised in commercial property.  My experience includes acting for sellers, buyers and lenders in both freehold and long leasehold transactions and acting for landlords and tenants in commercial leasehold transactions, dealing with a variety of properties including high street shops, shopping centre units, industrial units, offices, commercial buildings and development land.  I've also dealt with residential plot sales. I joined the course in 2004.

As Director of Employability and Enrichment I co-ordinate my, and my colleagues, work enabling professional and employability opportunities for our students. These encompass pro bono opportunities for students within the School and with external partners in Sheffield, mooting, negotiation and other professional skills, as well as a full employability programme.
