When not at work

Fiona is (finally) coming to the end of her first renovation project and so is enjoying spending less time in overalls and more time with her family and friends.

In addition to her passion for property and interior design, Fiona loves the great outdoors. When she is not busy planning her wedding, she enjoys nothing more than a weekend camping, walking and exploring in the countryside; the only downside being that she cannot take her cat Leo with her.

Sectors that Fiona is involved in:

Charities and Social Enterprises, Education, Academy Conversions and Projects, Education Tax, Independent Schools, Legal support for Schools and Academies
