I am a member of the Private Client team at Battens, based in the Sherborne office.
I am from South Africa originally where I became a dual-qualified solicitor, attorney and conveyancer. I was admitted as a solicitor in the UK in 2003, after qualifying through the SRA’s Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme. I then went on to practise at a firm in Plymouth specialising in Wills and Probate, before returning to South Africa where I was employed at an international financial services company advising clients on inheritance tax planning and pension law. On my return to the UK in 2016, and before joining Battens, I was employed in the Private Client department of a firm in East Devon advising on Wills, Court of Protection work and Probate.
In my spare time, I am an avid reader and collector of vintage tea cups. On weekends, I can be found, together with my husband and young daughter, enjoying our National Trust memberships, visiting beautiful places in the South West.
