She is used to punching above her weight and taking on challenging cases, all the while keeping her clients updated and assured of the progress made in helping them achieve the desired result.

Personal biography

'I love to get involved in endurance sports such as marathons and triathlons. Over the last few years at MBM I have taken part in the Edinburgh Marathon, completed the 54 mile Caledonian Challenge hike along the West Highland Way and finished the Great Artemis Quadrathlon. If it involves running, hiking and generally being outdoors I am up for it. I also love travelling and jump at an opportunity to visit new places'
