I have been a solicitor for over 30 years working in the local area for over half of that time with Hatten Wyatt in the Gravesend office. I specialise in residential and commercial property and I am also qualified as a Notary Public dealing with documents for use abroad.

Outside of work I am a trustee of a local charity in Northfleet, Alzheimer and Dementia Support Services. I love to garden and enjoy keeping chickens so I enjoy the idea of the school farm and wish I had gone to a school with that amazing facility.

Having been educated in the state system and with a teacher in my close family I have a great interest in how schools are run and as an employer myself particularly how schools deal with the transition for students into the workplace.
