Laura graduated from Leicester University in 1991 with a Bachelor of Education (Hons) after a stint in the RAF as an assistant air traffic controller where she met her husband. Moving with him to bases in the UK and Germany meant that she has worked in many different areas, including Primary School and Adult Education teaching, and as a Journalist.
When she moved to Torquay, she joined the firm in 2011 as a legal secretary, primarily supporting the solicitors in Family and then the Private Client department. As her role within the department developed, Laura supported the solicitors specialising in Trusts, subsequently becoming a Trust Administrator.
As a Legal Assistant within the department, Laura intends to continue to develop her role and knowledge in all aspects of trust administration and estate planning.
Laura enjoys taking part in sponsored events, in particular the Rowcroft Hospice challenges. One of the ways she raises money is by baking and selling cakes to her colleagues in the Torquay office. She also loves to travel, particularly New York.
