“I believe that good Architecture is a successful product of well designed and functional solutions of our client’s brief.”

“I believe that architecture is a skill that improves with experience. I’ve focused on sports and leisure architecture for over 20 years, and I’ve worked in the Middle East as well as the UK. I’ve worked with clients from the public and private sectors, and I’ve led diverse projects, from minor refurbishments to mega-developments. But there are still lessons to be learnt. I’m especially inspired by the fact that materials and construction methods are continually developing. It means that there’s always a new way to approach a design challenge. I’m keen to stay on the cutting edge.

Alongside my design life, I enjoy my managerial role, jointly running our Loughborough Office. And, as well as this, I provide support to our marketing team, helping to raise the profile of our local office and the Practice as a whole.

To my mind, a professional has an opportunity to use their knowledge and influence to benefit the wider world. My outside activities include membership of the Association of Women in Property and giving professional support to a local school, where we prepare students for practicing architecture.”
