After completing her Training Contract with Lawrence Stephens, Katrina qualified as a Solicitor in January 2021 and now works in the firm’s Real Estate Finance team.

At weekends she enjoys volunteering for various charitable organisations, including as a Project Leader at Foodcycle, cooking community meals using supermarket food waste and as a shop assistant for Crisis, a charity supporting homeless people.
