I started working at Lambert Chapman in May 2012 for the second time. I had previously worked at the Maldon office for over 8 years, leaving when I moved out of the area.

I work with Annette in reception. My main responsibilities include secretarial work for John Smith-Daye and supporting Annette with the telephones.


1st Job: Secretary at Danbury Conversions a small company in Danbury converting Volkswagens into mobile homes.

Great Meal: Anything tasty.  I love Indian food as long as it’s not too hot but also other cuisines as well.

Hometown: Most of my life in and around Maldon but moved to a village outside Sudbury, Suffolk in 2004.

Ideal day away from the office: Days out in London going to the Theatre, Horseracing or just walking the dogs.

Perfect holiday destination: I enjoy being away anywhere especially with my family but have to say the Caribbean Sea is a real treat.

Most listened to Music/Album: I like all different music, I listen to classical quite a bit but still love the 60 rock and roll, but also memories of my youth in the 70s.

Tipple of choice: I like a pint of real ale or a glass of red wine, in moderation of course.

Dream Motor: Cars don’t do much for me I just want a reliable one.

Classic Film: Can’t decide… Shindlers List or Dirty Dancing!
