Ellen Wood

Ellen is the Practice Director of Newport Land and Law, a solicitors firm based in Wakefield. She has a wealth of experience and skills from the education sector, having worked for a number of educational charities in her early working life.

In more recent years, since having her two children and then seeking a better work-life balance, Ellen has worked in Local Governance for the Registration Service as well as School and Academy Governance Services.

With her early career beginning in the charitable sector, Ellen had always been a strong supporter of community-based organisations and particularly the arts in all its forms, which has included working with families at Chatsworth House on their paintings and sculptures as well as running outdoor creative workshops for schools and families.
