What her clients say about her:

"Becky always has her clients' best interests at heart and is extremely helpful and understanding. She is always there to support the whole family" Natalie B, October 2020

"I was ill when I was 3½ years old. As a result I am a double amputee with frontal brain damage due to Clinical Negligence. I am unable to manage my own finances, so Becky assists me. I like working with Becky as I have no filter and I can be myself around her. She understands me and meets my needs. Becky has tried to leave me by changing firms, but I insisted I followed her as there is nobody else I would wish to work with" Chloe H

In her spare time, Becky enjoys yoga, skiing,  water sports and is about to embark on her motor boat qualifications. Becky is married with a young son and daughter who keep her active with walking, cycling, climbing and water sports.
