I joined the firm in April 2005 providing typing support in our Litigation Department dealing with road traffic accidents, catastrophic injuries and disputes.
Following the retirement of Mr Geoffrey Cardwell, a senior partner in the firm and a short stint in the Family Department, the work there was often fast-paced, heart-rending but very fulfilling knowing that we are helping families with legal matters and seeing a good outcome at the end.
I assisted Mrs Karen Killick in the Life before her retirement and my subsequent transfer to our Chester-le-Street office to work alongside Mrs Akkelin Harris, Solicitor in the Life Department.
Prior to joining DMA Law, I trained as a Beauty Therapist. I have worked for a debt counselling charity, Christians Against Poverty, and I was a secretary at Cleveland Bridge Eng.
I married my best friend Mark in 1985 and we have 3 grown-up children. I am very involved in my church, I love antiques, singing, shopping, watching old black & white films and living life!
