What is one legal myth that you’d love to dispel?

"That leaving the interior car light on is illegal!"


What made you want to work in your sector?

"The variety of areas there are to train and ultimately specialise in. It can be complex and therefore provides an intellectual challenge which can be rewarding and exciting. Also the fact that you are helping people in often difficult and stressful times."
