What inspires me in my role?
“On a daily basis working with clients I am inspired to deliver the best possible level of service I can to achieve their objectives. Client satisfaction is a huge inspiration. I find inspiration in training more junior members of the team and watching them learn and grow. I am constantly inspired by the reading I do and the brilliance of so many people in so many different fields. I am driven to make the firm the very best it can be, to work with everyone in the firm to be the best they can be in the communities in which we live and work. I work with some amazing people, women and men, all of whom have stories to tell and a richness to lend to life. Working from home I am able to find inspiration in hearing the birds sing outside my window! Outside of work, but of course intricately connected with it, I am constantly inspired by my husband and children who support me unfailingly: keeping me going through difficult times and celebrating the good times alongside me.”
