My role

As a trustee at Basis since 2021, I support my fellow trustees and the Basis team to lead and develop the charity. I am a member of the strategy and governance working group, providing input into the development of Basis’ strategy and its governance arrangements so that Basis is in the best possible position to achieve its vision and objectives.

My background

I am a Partner and head of Hill Dickinson LLP’s Leeds office (established in 2017). I work with health sector organisations, providing them with legal advice on contractual and governance matters. I am passionate about community engagement and as head of our growing Leeds office, I want to ensure that we contribute to our local community in meaningful and impactful ways. I have a keen interest in diversity and inclusion matters.

I grew up in Teesside and am a keen cyclist and walker.
