Compliance Adviser

Compliance Adviser

What gets me out of bed in the morning

Ironically, its knowing that I can help others get a good nights’ sleep! I was a practicing solicitor for 10 years before moving on to compliance, so I know first-hand how hectic things can get and that compliance can be a constant worry. I’m a bit of a perfectionist at heart and I like helping others put in place good systems and policies whilst also simplifying the maze of compliance.

An entrepreneur I admire

I particularly admire people who have come from humble beginnings who have had the vision to run with a new idea or concept. Laura Ashley is one that stands out, and not because I am a particular fan of her signatory flowery fabric! I was bought up not far from Laura Ashley’s first factory in Carno and it always stood out in such a rural setting. The fact that she began printing fabric from her kitchen table and built a successfully business whilst also bringing up 4 young children is particularly inspiring.

The fine print

  • Key practices: Compliance and Risk Management
  • Education and Training: University of Wales Aberystwyth (LLB), Cardiff Law School (LPC)
  • Other interests: Music, traveling and keeping fit (when I get a chance!)
