Lydia moved from her home in Northern Ireland (sadly leaving the family dog behind in the process) to study a law degree at Newcastle University, during which Newcastle became her new favourite city. She then went to Leeds to do the Legal Practice Course, before returning to Newcastle to begin her training contract with Muckle in September 2019.
Lydia is currently in her third seat in Construction and Engineering, where she is involved in various construction and development projects and some construction disputes work as well. Her previous seat was in Banking and Restructuring, in which she worked on banking transactions, loans, insolvency and bankruptcy matters and the banking side of corporate transactions. Her seat before that was in Real Estate where she assisted with lease work, commercial property work, real estate corporate support work and development work amongst other things.
In her spare time, Lydia likes being active and particularly enjoys running and golf at the moment. She also loves to bake, sing (both in her flat and in the Muckle Choir), listen to music, hang out with dogs when possible and binge watch Brooklyn 99 on occasion.
