Meet our new team member! Welcome to the team Jennifer!

Jennifer grew up in Peebles; she started her education at the “old” Kingsland Primary School and then attended Peebles High School. Jennifer moved to Alloa for a short time but she is now back home in the Scottish Borders with husband, 2 children and 2 dogs. She is currently living in her childhood home while she is building her dream house. Jennifer is delighted to be back home in Peebles and hopes to have a new home to move into soon!

Jennifer attended university in Newcastle and Edinburgh. She qualified as a solicitor in 2006. Jennifer trained at, and then worked for, several large commercial law firms in Edinburgh and the central belt before taking a career break from the law to raise her small children and during this time she started her own business: the Honey Darling Candle Company. Jennifer has now returned to the law to resume her role as a solicitor at Blackwood & Smith. She is focussing on property law and private client work.

Jennifer has a keen interest in private client work and the thing she likes most about being a solicitor is being able to help people.

Jennifer has many interests outside of the law however she doesn’t have much time for hobbies at the moment between working, raising a family and building a house. She spends most of her free time visiting various window/door/timber kit/solar panel etc showrooms. Jennifer has however found a little bit of space for herself and her daughter who are both embarking on a musical journey to learn to play the piano. Jennifer was very musical growing up and played lots of instruments but never piano.

Jennifer’s three favourite things (in no particular order) are:

Her family

Her dogs


We really hope you enjoyed getting to know more about Jennifer, we have certainly enjoyed her company over the past few weeks. Perhaps you will meet her in person during your next transaction with Blackwood & Smith!
