Andrea Moore – Practice Manager

Duties at MJH – Andrea manages the practice diary, draws up all client engagement documentation, files Annual Returns along with other daily and ad hoc administrative tasks.
Hobbies – Reading and writing poetry
Favourite Film – Pretty Woman is a film that Andrea has never tired of watching. Julia Roberts has played some gritty roles in her time. Sleeping with the Enemy is another gripping film, although that’s not quite so easy to watch!
Favourite books – Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights and Wilkie Collins’ Woman in White (Both novels captured Andrea’s imagination, transporting her there, so much so that her middle daughter is named Catherine after Bronte’s heroine!)
Favourite cake – Andrea says, if you’ve never tried a festival gateau then you don’t know what you’re missing! An indulgent custard and cream filling encased by a light and fluffy sponge, topped with decadent green marzipan, generously dusted with icing sugar! Yummy.
