A Law graduate with a BA in Russian and an MA in International Security and Terrorism, Phoebe has also held intelligence roles at risk advisory firms KCS Group and AKE.

Having been Membership Secretary of the Female Fraud Forum (FFF) for two years, Phoebe was elected Chair of the FFF in February 2022.
