I graduated with a LLB from USW in 2019 and am part way through the combined Masters with LPC which I aim to complete in 2020.
As a mature student I enrolled following the death of my father in whose practice I worked from a tender age and became Practice Manager having undertaken all administrative roles within that firm. The motive for pursuing a degree was not a mid-life crisis but a desire to continue dealing with clients and assisting them through sometimes difficult times.
The area of law I wish to focus on upon qualifying are wills, probate and administration, and lasting powers of attorney, with a desire to help and guide others.
While there hasn’t been much free time for hobbies in recent years, I follow international rugby at every opportunity travelling internationally and try to keep up with the regular six nations excursions. I’m a supporter of Swansea RFC and can be found volunteering in the club shop for home games in St Helens. I am also involved with Forget Me Not Dementia Day Clubs, a local charity that hold weekly groups in communities for dementia.
