More about Amy

What do you enjoy about your role?

Being able to make a difference to the lives of people who have been repeatedly let down and seeking justice on their behalf. The best bit of my job is watching my client’s progress.

What can clients expect from you?

Dedication, honesty and a common-sense approach.

What drew you to the type of work that you do?

Watching the Rotherham grooming scandal unfold in my home town and witnessing the devastating effects of child sexual abuse whilst training in the Child Care department.

What are your interests outside of work?

When I get some free time I love cooking and socialising with family and friends. I also have two puppies, a Springer Spaniel and a Jack Chi, which keep me busy.
