“Shelly is in my opinion an exceptional advocate - she has an eye for detail which is second-to-none and works well into the night if necessary. Her analysis of the issues in a case are completely focussed and sharp. A fighter for her client."
Shelly’s commitment to medical research ethics occasioned her 15 years’ service as a lay member of various Research Ethics Service committees, culminating in her 5-year appointment as Vice Chair (later Acting Chair) for the London Harrow Committee.
Occasionally, she likes to walk ridiculous distances for money (Trailwalker in 2011, Thames Path Challenge in 2013 and Canterbury Trek in 2017) and every year she will pester you to sponsor, donate or join her on the night shift at the Women’s Centre for ‘Crisis at Christmas’. In her spare time, you'll find her baking, dancing, drumming, lifting heavy things, taking photos and eating!
