I'm a senior paralegal in the serious injury team in Cambridge. I help a number of clients who've sustained life-changing injuries. As well as running my own cases, I also support senior colleagues in their cases involving traumatic brain injury and amputation.
What inspired you to get into law?
I like to help people and I believe a career within the legal sector lets me do this.
I chose to follow a career specifically within personal injury as you can really see the difference you can make to your client’s life. This includes both the compensation they receive but also through the support and assistance you have in their rehabilitation journey to recovery.
I enjoy connecting with my clients and forming a solid relationship with them throughout their claim.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
The most rewarding aspect of my job is seeing the difference I can make to my client’s life after sustaining life-changing injuries. It's lovely to feel involved in their journey to recovery when they receive the compensation they deserve.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
Working at Irwin Mitchell is extremely rewarding and the firm culture is brilliant. I've felt part of a team from the minute I walked through the door. There are endless extra curricular activities to get involved with and the office morale has always been so welcoming and fun!
What do you do away from the office?
I like to travel as much as I can, exploring new countries and reliving past times. I have dual UK and USA nationality and like to spend time visiting family and friends in New Jersey where I spent my childhood. I also enjoy amateur dramatics, performing a couple times a year in various productions.
Failing this, you will find me socialising with friends or shopping!
