I am a solicitor by profession and a former city councillor and parliamentary candidate. I currently work for the Independent Office for Police Conduct. Any views expressed on this website are mine alone.
In terms of my background I have a degree in politics and history, a graduate diploma in law and a postgraduate diploma in legal practice. I have worked in sales, banking and customer relations for a number of FTSE 100 companies. I have also worked as a TV news presenter.
I trained with a Legal 500 law firm and qualified as a solicitor in 2010. I worked at several firms and practiced in a number of areas including business defence, crime, regulatory law and professional discipline. I have taken actions against the police and also defended officers for the Police Federation. Alongside my legal career I volunteered as a school governor, law association committee member, company director and charity trustee.
Between May 2011 and May 2015 I served a full four year term as a Leicester City Councillor (Beaumont Leys). I also served as a Board Member of the Leicestershire Police Authority. I stood for Parliament in the 2015 General Election (Harborough) and I stood for Birmingham City Council in the 2018 English local elections (Harborne).
I work as a Lead Investigator at the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC). Between June 2016 and February 2020 I served as PCS Branch Secretary within the IOPC. I led a team of officials and worked to protect the jobs and interests of hundreds of IOPC staff across England and Wales. My work at the IOPC is entirely non-political.
