What is your current role?

I am a collections specialist in our Basking Ridge office and I joined Kennedys in 2018.

What does a typical day at Kennedys look like for you?

I spend my day in my office (currently a desk in my bedroom) working with attorneys and clients on appeals and payments. I also work closely with the billing, accounting and database teams to resolve any issues that come up.

What is it like working for a global law firm?

It feels exciting to be a part of something so large. It gives me a chance to daydream about working in Scotland one day.

What is your favourite thing about working at Kennedys?

There's a good sense of teamwork. Everyone is willing to help out and work towards the same goal.
