I have ten years’ experience working in a variety of different legal sectors but family law is the department I enjoy working in the most and so when the opportunity arose at a firm that specialises in family law, I jumped at the opportunity.
I initially joined the Worcester Team at Greens Solicitors in 2021 as an Admin Assistant to work alongside David Wilkins but the encouraging attitude at Greens motivated me to progress and I am now working as a Legal Assistant within the team. In my spare time I enjoy reading and spending time with my partner and our dog.
