Patricia hails from Northern Ireland, but arrived in Lancaster many years ago to do and MSc in European Environmental Policy and Regulation at Lancaster  University, having previously completed her law degree at the University of Mid Glamorgan.

Patricia joined the team at Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand having spent the past sixteen years working at two other local law firms, based in Morecambe.  That was following a three year period working in estate agency.  Patricia has joined the Property department, specialising in residential matters.

One of the most satisfying parts of residential conveyancing is being involved in a process that means so much to the client, whether it’s a client collecting their first set of keys or the client selling up at the end of an era.

Living in Heysham, Patricia likes to walk along Morecambe’s promenade in all weathers to appreciate the ever changing vista. She also participates in Zumba classes twice weekly, something she doesn’t like to miss.
