An extremely hard worker, over-protective mum and loving wife. I am delightfully passionate about the law and believe that everyday has new beginnings. I am also a strong leader and enjoy working in a team as well. I demand respect both in the workplace and at home yet I am entirely open to constructive criticism. I may come across as a very 'hard' individual but I am real 'softie'. I believe in commitment and will always give off the best of my potential.
