She is a member of the Family Law organisation, Resolution.

Managing Director at FBC Manby Bowdler, Neil Lloyd said: “As a firm we strive for stellar service, it’s at the heart of what we do, but we can’t do that without the hard work of each and every one of the team here at FBC Manby Bowdler. That’s why it’s so important to recognise and reward the achievements of individuals within the firm who go above and beyond to service our clients. These five talented and driven colleagues from Shropshire have truly earned their promotions to Associate and we will continue to support them on their journey with us.”
