Legal Secretary

  1. What does your role at Silk Family Law involve?

Providing secretarial support to the team, Wayne Lynn and Ian Kennerley in particular and liaising with clients throughout their cases.

  1. What did you do before you joined the team?

I worked as an office junior at DTZ in Newcastle upon Tyne before joining Dickinson Dees’ Family Team in 2003. I then transferred with the family team from Dickinson Dees when they formed Silk Family Law in 2010. All in all, I have worked with the family team now for 20 years.

  1. What is your favourite part of the job?

It has to be the subject of law we deal with. Family Law is very interesting.

  1. What do you most like about working at Silk Family Law?

The team I work with, past and present. I have made many good friends working at Silk.

  1. What else would you like to be doing if you weren’t doing this role?

I have worked as a secretary for a long time but before this, I always wanted to either work with animals or in the travel industry.

  1. What is your perfect day away from the office?

A day trip out with the family. We love a day at the zoo or the farm.

  1. What would you do if you won the lottery?

I would like to book a trip to America or maybe purchase a holiday home abroad. It would be nice to jet off on a weekend for a bit of sunshine.

  1. Who would you most like to have a drink with and why?

I would love to have a drink with my nana who sadly passed away last year unexpectedly. She may only have a cup of tea, but it would be nice to sit and have a good old gossip and put the world to rights.
