Laura began her career as a typist for Intelligent Office (now Williams Lea), quickly rising to the role of team leader. Celebrated for her speed and accuracy, Laura's passion for exceptional administrative support led her to a position as a legal secretary.

 

She honed her skills at the Glasgow-based high street firm, Livingstone Brown. There, she supported vulnerable clients through complex litigation, gaining expertise in processing legal aid applications and accounts.
