Karen started her legal secretarial career 29 years ago, in England, as a junior secretary at a law office specializing in all areas of law. Over the years, she progressed to working for senior partners in corporate, commercial and insolvency law, in one of the largest law firms in the United Kingdom. She gained a wealth of experience and knowledge, which she put to good use on emigrating to Canada in 2015. She has worked as a legal assistant in Victoria BC, specializing in wills, probate, corporate and commercial, before moving to Cranbrook in January 2017, when she joined Rella, Paolini & Rogers.
