I am a general practice solicitor with a passion for the law and client satisfaction. My previous vocations are in the health and fitness industry as well as retail management.

I started studying law externally as a mature age student whilst a stay at home mother living remotely and raising young children. I commenced working in the legal industry as a Law Clerk and completed my law degree. I undertook a two year Supervised Traineeship then commenced practising law as a solicitor.

During my legal career, I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting clients and establishing and maintaining excellent working relationships with them. I firmly believe this is not only an essential aspect of being a good solicitor but is also essential to properly assist clients to solve their legal problems and achieve desirable outcomes.

I am attracted to law for its diversity; however, I became a solicitor because I have a passion for helping people.

I proudly manage the Ipswich & Brisbane Valley branch of Swift Legal.

My experiences

My career in law started in a small country law firm where I worked for over six years. This environment provided me with the opportunity to assist a variety of clients with a wide range of matters. I have worked mainly in estate planning (including Wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney and Advance Health Directives), deceased estates, family law, leases and commercial conveyancing. I also have experience in domestic violence matters, and the transfer of both water licences and water allocations.

As a late starter to law (and a working mother), I also bring with me a wealth of life experience, transferable skills from previous work and maturity.
