I have worked as a Practice Manager at practices of varying sizes for the past 14 years.
Having originally trained as an accountant, I have transferred those skills into the legal world and utilise my knowledge and experience to assist in driving business profitability through effective staff management and team strategy and freeing up fee earners to focus on clients and their business development.
I joined OGR Stock Denton in January 2015 and it is without a doubt the best place I have ever worked. There is so much to do but everyone is willing to embrace change and that in turn motivates me to work harder and drive us forward.
As part of my role with the firm, I focus on change management, compliance, lockup management, facilities, HR and IT. I also facilitate Partner meetings and assist the finance team on a regular basis with both reporting and general management.
I believe it is important to encourage business growth and help make a team more profitable, while continuing to ensure individuals feel valued.
