I'm a Paralegal working in the medical negligence team in Manchester and a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
I specialise in medical negligence and my role involves assessing new cases that come into the team. I also represent people who might have received substandard care in any medical setting such as a hospital or dental clinic.
I have a particular interest in cases about fatalities, cancer, surgical negligence and obstetric emergencies.
What inspired you to get into law?
During my academia, I helped people facing court alone by offering emotional and practical support. This allowed me to help empower and protect a wide range of individuals such as children, victims of abuse, and those who cannot afford legal representation.
I then developed an interest in practising the law. I enjoy the intellectual challenge of keeping up to date with the law, problem solving and creative thinking. I also enjoy delivering a personal service to a client who may have been injured as a result of negligence.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I find it satisfying to empower a wide range of people such as the vulnerable, children and the voiceless. I also enjoy bringing settlement to a claim where an injury could have been avoided and finding the answers to my clients' questions.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
Irwin Mitchell is committed to ensuring inclusivity for all its employees and clients as a proud Stonewall Diversity Champion. We're committed to improving our workplace culture through participation in the Great Place to Work survey, which has seen multiple consecutive annual improvements.
What do you do away from the office?
When not working or studying, I love nothing more than to run locally in Manchester or with my partner in various races. On my weekends, I also enjoy yoga & travelling.
In my spare time, I often dedicate myself to volunteering for various organisations mainly in the legal sector.

"I contacted Irwin Mitchell on behalf of my dad to pursue a medical negligence claim. Ruth Thomas and Nathan Taylor handled my case and I couldn't be happier with the service they provided from beginning to end. It was a very complicated case, yet they managed to achieve a settlement and a level of compensation that far exceeded my expectations. They were very dedicated to achieving the best possible result for me throughout what was a very long and drawn out case, and for that I'm very thankful." - 5* Trustpilot review
