About me
Just your typical Millennial London Girl. Well, except the whole neurodiverse, opinionated, bisexual, feminist-Disney-Princess thing. Currently Diversity & Inclusion Manager at Chambers & Partners, the leading legal data and insights company. I started my career in legal marketing and after an all too brief stint in CSR moved to the charity sector, joining NABS in 2016 to support the fundraising and community partnerships team. I spent four years there talking to organisations around Adland about how NABS can help their people be their happiest, healthiest selves and fundraising to support NABS’s services. In 2021 I joined Chambers & Partners as a Diversity & Inclusion Adviser and three months later was promoted to Diversity & Inclusion Manager. My current role involves advising the business on how to make it's products more diverse, producing market leading thought leadership and working to build an inclusive and welcoming internal culture at Chambers. I first spoke publicly about my Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD and mental health struggles at the first DiverseMinds conference in March 2018. A true believer in the power of storytelling to educate, inspire and change minds since then I've shared my story at organisations including Coca Cola, Direct Line and adam&eveDDB. A born and bred London girl, my free time is spent exploring the city’s ever changing multitudes, seeking out its weirdest cabaret and continuing my quest for its best salted caramel brownie.
