Having obtained a training contract with Birketts (commencing in September 2024), Josie is currently studying part time at the University of Law to obtain an LLM Legal Practice (SQE 1 & SQE 2).
In her spare time Josie enjoys walking her dogs and spending time with her family and friends. She also enjoys travelling to different countries when she can.
Josie likes to give back to the community where she can and so she is a member of the Charity Committee in the Chelmsford office and is involved in arranging various fundraising events throughout the year.
