Meningitis Now Believe & Achieve B&A - Business Skills Mentor - Julie Marsh

I enjoy reading, travel and entertaining, and if you can't find me, I will be hiding in the garden

Julie Marsh

Believe & Achieve Next Step Mentor, Trustee

Julie Marsh is a Senior Associate Solicitor within the Clinical Negligence Team at Boyes Turner LLP, a regional law firm based in Reading.

Julie works tirelessly in her role to help people who have suffered life changing injuries, and as a result of her work, has seen first-hand the devastating impact meningitis can have on individuals, their family and friends. This is what inspired her to support Meningitis Now, and led to her Trustee role.

She is also a Believe & Achieve Next Step Mentor for the charity, offering help, guidance and support to those affected by meningitis who want to develop business skills.

Julie regularly works alongside local charities, fundraising and signposting people so they can access the support and help they need.

Julie runs an annual Christmas wreath-making event for the charity, and has been the organiser of a Toddle Waddle event locally too.

Julie is proud to join the charity as a Trustee, and offer her legal expertise to the board, but also to help the charity maintain its focus on supporting those affected by meningitis.

Julie has two children, Isla (6) and Isabella (8), who keep her busy with her dog Frankie. She loves pottering in the garden, and early Sunday mornings can often be found out for a run by the River Thames or on a long woodland walk.
