Protection Manager

You guys are phenomenal! Great customer service from everyone I’ve dealt with over the past year. Wealth of knowledge and patience. I do not just appreciate your ability to see what I couldn’t financially and steer me right, I also appreciate all the knowledge I’ve gained from you guys. I am a proud home owner because of you!

My role at The Orchard Practice

I graduated from the University of Birmingham with a Batchelor in Medical Science before studying Law. I qualified as a solicitor in 2009 and then spent nine years working in Landlord and Tenant Dispute Resolution, before joining The Orchard Practice.

I spend my day working directly with our clients, helping to ensure they have the right protection policies in place. This involves making certain the application process goes smoothly, updating them on ongoing work, processing medical questionnaires or discussing other ways we may be able to help them.  I also spend time speaking with various insurers.

I thoroughly enjoy the client interaction, it’s a key part of my role within the business, seeing how our work is making a difference to their lives is incredibly rewarding.

Outside of work

When not working I love spending time with my family and friends, spinning, shopping and reading recipe books.
