After graduating from the University of Nottingham with a bachelor’s degree in French and Hispanic studies, I began my career in recruitment working with a well-known global business. After 3 years I developed a firm interest in recruitment, and decided to pursue another passion of mine, HR. I joined Oakleaf Partnership’s market leading Reward, HR Analytics and HR technology team in 2016 and took over as head of department for our UK Reward practice in 2019.

In 2022 we joined our specialist markets divisions and I began also leading our hugely successful Payroll team as Director of Reward & Payroll.

I myself focus on interim management in the senior and executive level across all sectors within Reward, HR analytics and HR technology. Over the years, I have enjoyed developing a deeply specialist and technical understanding of compensation and benefits; I pride myself on my reward network, my interim management expertise and being able to guide my clients through engaging with exceptional talent in this space.

Outside of work, I enjoy travelling and eating out and spending time exploring the countryside with my Irish Setter, Ralph.
