I grew up in East Sussex and attended a local primary school and then St. Leonards Mayfield. I studied English Literature at Durham University then after a CPE conversion course at the College of Law, Guildford and Legal Practice Course at the College of Law, London, qualified as a lawyer. I have worked at law firms in London, Norfolk and Kent but most recently in the City where I practised in the area of Commercial Litigation specialising in Construction industry disputes. Currently I look after my three small children, the eldest of whom is in year 1 at Blackboys CEP, and manage a number of properties which we rent to tenants in London. I am on the PCC in Buxted but we will shortly be moving to Framfield where I am looking forward to being a part of our new parish.
