I joined Gordon Dadds in 2016 from Watkins and Gunn Solicitors where I built a successful department and was the firm’s Conveyancing Quality Supervisor.
I have 14 years post qualification expertise, and I specialise in all aspects of residential property including sales, purchases, re-mortgages, transfers of equity with a focus on quality and have also dealt with deeds of easement, lease extensions and creation of new residential leases. I am familiar in dealing with high-end transactions and more technically demanding work.
In my free time I am a semi-professional musician; I play Violin and Viola in numerous orchestras and also play the Piano.

What would your motto be?
If a job is worth doing, it is worth doing well.
What are you most passionate about (personally)?
I am a semi-professional musician and enjoy playing the violin and viola in several orchestras in England and Wales. I am also the music librarian for The Glam Reunion Organisation which formed two years ago and raises money to launch, develop and support youth music opportunities across South Wales. We wish to bridge the gap to bring music opportunities back to all young people in the “land of song”. This not only enables the children to learn a musical instrument, but hones the additional life skills of discipline, team building, confidence building and social skills. Our patron is a former Glam member - Sir Karl Jenkins CBE
