I currently work at EMG Solicitors Ltd as a Client Executive in the court of protection team a position I have held for 3 years. Having previously worked for a local authority in court of protection for 6 years. This involves the management of vulnerable people finances where they lack capacity to manage their own funds.
I used to play badminton in the Northumberland Leagues, however nowadays to keep fit you can find me treading the pavements around my home after taking up running, which lead to me running my first Great North Run in 2019 for Prostate Cancer UK. A bad injury the week before the race and the reoccurrence during the race still hasn’t put me off from running it again for Headway Wearside!
