I'm a registered nurse, with experience of working across various sites and disciplines, including surgical wards, medical wards, A&E and prison nursing. I have worked as a disability/functional assessor on behalf of the DWP and have a good understanding of the benefits system.
I have close links with local health and social care professionals which helps me when working with our clients. I offer guidance, support, education and can act as advocate. I will liaise with the relevant medical professionals, social workers, school, employers, statutory services and charity to ensure our clients’ needs are addressed and met.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I feel the role puts me in a very privileged position. Being able to offer support and guidance to our clients during very challenging times, offering practical advice and support. Working alongside our clients and families while they navigate the challenges rehabilitation can bring and steer towards a positive future is very rewarding and humbling.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
Despite no legal experience, working with like minded people who put the clients at the centre of everything they do, helps us all remain focussed on gaining the best outcome possible for our clients.
Being encouraged to go the extra mile for our clients and working towards a common goal helps me remain enthusiastic and passionate about my role and what we can achieve as a team.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy spending time with my family, holidays to hot interesting countries. I like to take Eric and Dolly, my two Shih Tzu’s for long walks in the local countryside. I am interested in the Tudor era and also enjoy reading and writing novels. I am a published author and currently I am working on my second book.
