Outside of work
Deeply rooted in Staffordshire, Marie was born and bought up in the Burntwood area and has lived there all of her life, apart from a brief spell away at University. As a student she worked at St Matthews Hospital Psychiatric Hospital during a gap year and holidays, which gave her an understanding of working with the elderly and mental illness. She also worked for her parents who have nursing homes in the Burntwood area, once again with the elderly and mentally ill.
Marie has always been passionate about her local community. Her family have long established links with St Matthews Sports and Social Club and have actively fund-raised for the sleepover club at Saxon Hill School, Lichfield.

We approached Pickerings Solicitors with our enquiry for joint wills prior to marriage. The service was efficient and painless with great support and guidance throughout the process. This sensitive and personal topic was handled delicately and professionally at all times. Thank you again. M
