Caroline started her career working for a London firm of solicitors where she qualified as a fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives.
Caroline took a career break to care for her family. She later became a mature student and gained a law degree. Prior to her retirement in 2018 Caroline worked as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant and also completed ELSA, Nurture Group and Learning Mentor training.
