In 2011 she left South Africa for Mallorca Spain where she and her family lived until her daughter completed her A levels, at which stage the whole family joined Jodi (who left the island earlier to set up home in England) in October 2016.
Jodi began studying for her QLTS (conversion course for lawyers educated abroad) in 2015, and has written the majority of the examinations and is to complete the last one at the end of this year, subject to COVID 19 restrictions. She is currently registered to practice under the Solicitors Regulation Authority, which she is very proud of.
She has spent 5 years in conveyancing practice in the United Kingdom and has enjoyed it thoroughly. “The legislature between the two countries is very similar; however, the practice as regards Conveyancing is very different. I love researching old title deeds and the history that come with these beautiful old English homes.”
