What I love and do
I live with my husband and son in Oxford and love music, reading, theatre, dining out and hosting friend and family get-togethers. Having recently got back into dancing, yoga and pilates, I am looking forward to a fitter, healthier lifestyle once my legs have stopped complaining. In our family – we love travel, food and all things Italian.
What I do and love
I am a specialist employment lawyer and have spent the last 20 years helping businesses and individuals with their employment issues – reactively, pro-actively and calmly. I am a trainer in Equality Diversity and Inclusion and interested in corporate culture and helping to create an environment where people are operating at their best professionally and personally. I assist businesses with their wellbeing objectives and can provide training on issues such as making adjustments for staff with disabilities, dealing with bereavement including suicide and other mental health issues which can have an impact on our working life. I help management and leadership teams develop best practice strategies to communicate effectively and unlock the potential of their businesses. I create tools for managers to use to assist with difficult conversations.
I support the Warwick Business School MBA programme as well as advising several charities, independent schools as well as Colleges in the University of Oxford. I am Chair of Trustees of a local charity which I find very rewarding.
For individuals, I have a specialist interest in discrimination law, especially cases involving maternity & pregnancy discrimination and whistleblowing. I also specialise in supporting executives and professionals who are considering an exit from their current role within the next 6-12 months. I adopt coaching methods to facilitate their own thinking plus provide advice on employment law rights so that they are fully informed about their situation before making a move.
I am always happy to speak confidentially and free of charge initially to explore your issue and provide a range of options for dealing with your concerns.
