Having worked in Dorchester for the last 12 years, I joined Porter Dodson in July 2016 as an associate in the Residential Property Department. I became a partner in July 2019.

    I deal with all types of sales and purchases, remortgaging and transfer of equity on both Freehold and Leasehold properties. I have experience in dealing with the help to buy scheme and also shared ownership properties.

    I believe that communication is crucial. Moving home is considered to be one of the most stressful times in our lives, however it need not be and this is what I aim to achieve.

    I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives.

    I am a finalist in the CILEx National Awards 2019 for the Legal Expert in Property.
