Joely started out in Advertising, before deciding to pursue a legal career and so began studying a Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) back in 2018. It was this decision that introduced Joely to the wonderful world of legacies, whilst looking for work that would complement her studies.
Joely joined the sector as a Legacy Officer at the British Heart Foundation whilst studying her GDL part-time, and remained there for 2 and a half happy (but busy!) years, managing residuary files each day and attending law classes in the evenings. During this time she studied Equity & Trusts and Land Law on the GDL.
Joely successfully completed the GDL with Distinction and is now studying the Legal Practice Course. This course includes further relevant, practical studies such as a focus on Wills and Probate Administration as well as Property Law, and so is continuing to develop legal and legacy knowledge.
Joely joined Legacy Link in 2021 and is very grateful for the opportunity to support so many important charities by maximising their legacy income.
