Prior to joining the legal sector, I had 18 years’ experience as registered nurse in both the NHS and the Royal Navy. I worked in many areas during my career including primary care and day surgery. Later I specialised in operating theatre nursing, working predominantly in orthopaedics and reconstructive plastic surgery.

I use my nursing experience to advise on cases. I interpret and assess the medical records that are vital to a successful clinical negligence claim.  I also liaise with clients and medical experts and draft legal letters.

Career Highlights

  • Assisting and advising on an orthopaedic compartment syndrome case where early admissions were made.
  • Advising and assisting on a cauda equina case, achieving compensation for a client left significantly disabled.
  • Assisting in a child brain injury case where a multimillion-pound settlement was achieved.
