I started working for the Chemists’ Community Funds Team in February 2021. Prior to this, my career had been from a legal background. I completed an undergraduate degree in Law and went on to complete the Legal Practice Course. More recently I had been working as a Legal Executive in a firm in Cambridge for several years. My practice areas were within the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence department. I had experience with dealing with a variety of cases from injury at work matters to public liability claims.
My background gave me an insight into complexities of day to day case work but also brought to focus that my passion is for delivering excellent one to one care for my clients and instrumenting change on an individual level. I have been able to apply my skills in a new area where it can be impactful. In my current role, I act as a point of contact for our members and able to guide them through the support the Chemists’ Community Fund can offer. I am proud to be part of a team which not only helps to support our members through their own challenging circumstances but a team that is constantly involving and has dealt with the most remarkable period in all our recent histories and has been able to meet and respond to our member’s needs.
Outside work, I love travelling. Coming from a West African background and having lived in Kenya, I am constantly looking for new places to explore. In the last year, I have been lucky to explore places closer to home with my faithful dog, Ozzie on our walks. I love to unwind with family and friends, find my centre on a yoga mat and tend to my garden.
