I joined the firm in 1989 as a secretary in Commercial Department. I have also worked in the Debt Recovery and Family Departments.
I left Smith Partnership in 2003, though returned in 2006 to work as a legal clerk with the Family Department in the Burton office.
With an ambition to start my own business, I left again in 2008 before returning in 2010 working in the Personal Injury Department. I now work part-time on my own case load of industrial deafness claims.
Beyond the office, I live with my husband and daughter and our two-year-old black Labrador. I can often be found spending time with family and friends and walking the dog.
I also edit Raring2go! magazine, a guide for parents of where to go and what to do in the local area.
