After retiring from my own practice, joining Greens was an attractive opportunity due to the welcoming atmosphere and forward-thinking nature of the firm. Such qualities are essential to succeed as a firm must remain approachable to all members of the public whilst continuing to grow.
Coming from a regular, working class background has meant that I can offer clients an approachable, honest and realistic service. A key aspect of my approach is to avoid building false hopes of the client, I strive to consistently provide clear and appropriate advice throughout my work.
In my free time I enjoy socialising, rugby and dog walks.
