My Story

Hey there!

My name is Madeleine, but most people call me Maddie.

I was born on the Isle of Man to Austrian parents and grew up mainly in Austria (with short periods spent in Australia and Oman).

When I was 18, I decided to study law in the UK and pursue a legal career in England. I spent 4 very happy years studying for my LLB and LLM at Cardiff University (it's the best place!)

After university, I was very lost - I thought I had to get a training contract at a commercial law firm, which I was struggling with.

I then ended up doing an internship at GE Aviation in their in-house contracts department. During that time, it dawned on me that, I could work and forge a career in-house.

I subsequently found a role as a contracts manager and discovered alternative routes to qualifying. I am now a Chartered Legal Executive, English Solicitor, New York Attorney, and a Certified Information Privacy Professional.

When I am not working, you can find me reading, running, traveling, creating, and/or consuming online courses (I am a big learner!)
