Did you know that you can effectively take away an employee’s disability by removing barriers to them in the workplace, school, or public space?  How wonderful is that?  I give talks to organisations on how to achieve this.  My talks are humorous and moving as well as educational.  I will also become a published author in 2022.


I have been visually impaired since birth.  During my childhood, I was repeatedly told I would never gain qualifications, or be employed.  I gained my Law Degree in 1995, and ten years later I was a Departmental Head of HR for Nottingham City Council.  In 2011 I left the council and founded my successful Will Writing business, which celebrated ten years in 2021.


My forthcoming book “She Will Never…” is my story of a full and fun life with visual impairment.  It is due to be published in October 2022, and includes tips and information for people facing sight loss at any age.

I Am A Woman Who (2021 Edition)

Do not allow yourself to be defined by the label that other people place on you. Yes, I am visually impaired, but this does not stop me from achieving my goals. It may mean that I have to achieve them in a different way – and I have learned to enjoy being different.
