Lewina graduated from European Studies (with Spanish) at the University of Limerick (via Barcelona as an Erasmus student) after which she then completed a Masters in International Relations before moving to the UK in 1996. She studied part-time at law school before training and qualifying as a solicitor in Aug 2004. Lewina was Head of Legal Services at the REC for 10 years before setting up RecruiterLaw in March 2021 and now also works part-time as Legal Manager at TPP.
In her spare time Lewina co-runs and is Club Welfare Officer at a community football club in south east London (which now has 200 children). She also does a lot of craft including papercraft, knitting and sewing (and watching foreign language programmes on Netflix on the pretext that she’s learning something and not just watching TV!).
