I was brought up in Norfolk, attended Norwich High School for Girls (GDST), before heading to Exeter University, to read Latin. I went on to study law at the College of Law in Guildford, completing my training at Herbert Smith where I joined the Litigation Department. As a commercial litigation lawyer, I have handled a variety of cases over the years, from prosecuting illegal taxi drivers at Heathrow Airport to defending a company accused of stealing trade secrets. I worked for various law firms in London between having children, most recently McGuireWoods, an American law firm in the City.
We moved out of London in 2015 to my husband’s home city of Oxford. I decided to have a break from law and having been involved with various schools over the years in Tower Hamlets and Putney, started to volunteer at Windale Primary School in the reading scheme set up by the Dragon. I realised how much I enjoyed working in education and a school environment and having looked at many schools for my own 3 children, I know how important a friendly and professional admissions department is! We have experienced the many dilemmas surrounding finding the right schools and relocating to Oxford that so many families I speak to now are contemplating. I have had 2 boys go through the Dragon and as a parent, have seen first hand the many opportunities on offer here and how Dragon children thrive, busy and happy.
I love reading and cooking in my spare time, when not driving my children to various sports fixtures around the country!
