Senior Associate


I am a Senior Associate in our operational real estate team based in the West End. I am a specialist agent advising mostly on disposals and acquisitions on educational, healthcare, student, nursery, religious orders, community, other institutional and charity held properties. I have further experience in valuation, lease consultancy and other advisory services, including providing Qualified Surveyor’s (Charities Act) Reports.

I have been at Gerald Eve for approximately 4 and a half years now, following my move across from Aitchison Raffety, where I carried out much of the same work, but also in other markets such as the retail and office markets and the primary healthcare sector.

I have worked with clients including; Care UK, Friends of the Elderly, Alpha Plus, Dukes Education, United Colleges Group, Eurocentres Foundation services, Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul, Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the Seventh-day Adventist Church and Society of the Sacred Heart.
