I joined Battens in October 2015 as an Executive within the Company Commercial Team and provide a Company Secretarial Service advising all types and sizes of companies and its Directors on their duties and liabilities. This can include; company incorporations, appointing directors, holding and attending AGMs or issuing and transferring share capital.

I have previous experience as a Governance Officer assisting the Company Secretary within a large Housing Group. This centred around board management and governance compliance with the Companies Act and various Housing related bodies. I also gained experience in data protection, business continuity, risk management and was involved in the governance arrangements of the merger of two Housing Groups and the subsequent amalgamation of its Housing Associations.

I graduated from Bournemouth University with a BA (Hons) Degree in Business Studies, completed part time in parallel with my role as a Business Analyst at Barclays Bank.

Outside of work I am Mum to a toddler, book keeper and office help for my husband's landscaping and garden maintenance business. In my spare time I enjoy family outings, and especially walks along the coast.
