I joined Dummett Copp 1994 as a Partner's secretary and moved into the Formalities Department a couple of years later. I am now the Formalities Manager with overall responsibility for the Formalities Team, which monitors incoming and outgoing correspondence, maintains the computerised records-keeping and diary systems and the renewal of clients' patents, trade marks and designs. I also make sure the Fee Earners meet their deadlines and deal with patent and trade mark assignments and licensing. I have recently completed an NVQ 3 in Management.
Outside the office my time is filled with looking after my two children. I am a member of two Parent Teacher Association committees.
I try to keep fit and relax by swimming and walking my two dogs. We also enjoy family weekends away camping during the summer.
