Legal Secretary

Job Role at EMG

I joined EMG Solicitors as a Legal Secretary at the Penrith Office in the Wills Trust and Probate Department in February 2022. I saw the post advertised and thought this was too good an opportunity to miss and I was fortunate to get offered the post.


I have over 30 years experience working in various solicitors starting my career in Lincolnshire, then moving to the north-east in 2002. I have worked at various offices in the north-east before moving across to the north-west. I also have had experience in conveyancing, commercial conveyancing and family, however Wills, Trusts and Probate is the department I thoroughly enjoy.

I am also a Dementia Friend.

What do I like about EMG

From the minute I walked in the office it is so friendly, people are so helpful and caring, it certainly is “one big happy family”. I feel very fortunate to be part of EMG Solicitors and to be working at the Penrith Office joining from the start and watching the office grow and establish.

Outside of EMG

I love to be outdoors whether it be gardening which I find very therapeutic, following my granddaughter BMX racing or my partner MX racing or trying to keep fit cycling, swimming or walking our two Border Terriers, Bob and Dusty. In the past I have done holistic therapy courses and have recently passed my Indian Head Massage course. I like to travel be it home or abroad.
