I am currently a third-year law student at De Montfort University, I have undertaken various roles within local government that has fuelled my passion to be a voice for those who are in need the most. This led me to studying law at a later time in my life so that I can continue to help those in need. My career goal is to qualify as a solicitor in an area of law which allows me to further my expertise and take on increased responsibility.

I also volunteer for the Citizens Advice Witness Service which gives me an insight into the criminal justice system and court procedures.

After watching the ‘three girls’ I was in ore with Maggie Oliver for a while after seeing the passion and dedication she has with young people who have suffered the evil of sexual child abuse.  I wanted to help the MOF and contribute with the transferable skills I have and achieve positive outcomes for survivors of child sexual abuse.  My aim to is research into the law and find the ‘loopholes’ to where sometimes the criminal justice system and people of higher authority fail and let us down.

I am a mother of three beautiful children, they are what motivate me the most to want to protect and keep safe all children who need support.

In my spare time I enjoy walks, travelling and socialising with friends.  I always have open ears and as most would say, I love to talk too!!
