I am mum to two high school age girls.
Originally from Durham, I have lived in Harrogate for almost 20 years and consider myself to possess essential “Yorkshire qualities”. I am a committed Collaborative lawyer, a member of the Collaborative Regional Committee and an Advanced member of the Law Society Family Law Panel.

In my spare time there is nothing better than a day walking in the Yorkshire hills.

I hail from the other side of the Pennines but having married a Yorkshireman somewhat inevitably settled in Yorkshire and have now lived here for many years. I specialise in all areas of family law and I have a particular interest in the treatment of pensions on divorce.  I’m a member of Resolution and a collaborative lawyer, committed to a sensible and constructive approach to resolving family law disputes.
My spare time usually involves running the family taxi service for my two children but I do play the bass clarinet in a local wind band and otherwise enjoy cooking and spending time with family.

When not throwing myself around a muddy course I am also a keen baker, and I am steadily learning Spanish. My special area of interest is in connection with financial issues surrounding separation and divorce, in particular where there are farming issues.
