A: I’m easy to talk to. I think clients also like that I deal with things as quickly as I can and assist them when they are going through difficult times.
A: Part of my training contract was in the Wills and probate department and I really enjoyed it, that is what I wanted to carry on doing once qualified.
A: On a professional level, I am obviously proud of my qualifications but also being part of a strong probate team here at Switalskis. On a personal level, my children have to be my proudest achievements.
A: Before having children, I used to enjoy walking and in time, when the children are old enough, I look forward to doing more of that. At the moment, my spare time is taken up with them but I do enjoy reading a good book when I get the chance. I also like to get out and about with my family at weekends and tend to visit local places such as Nostell Priory and Newmillerdam.
