What made you decide to become a lawyer?

I have always wanted to work in a role that was focussed on helping children and families. Being a lawyer provides me with the skills to allow those most vulnerable in our society to be heard.


Where did you study law?

University of Canterbury / Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha


What’s the best piece of advice (work or personal) you’ve ever been given?

I am sure I’ve been given lots of excellent advice, but my friends and family can attest that I am not very good at following it. In which case, the best advice I can pass on is that mistakes are okay as long as you learn from them.


Everybody has a superpower - what's yours?

I always plug USBs in the right way first time.


What would you choose as your Mastermind specialist subject?

The Twilight Saga


Do you have any hobbies/interests outside of work?

Outside of work I love horse riding, skiing and snowboarding, sewing, reading and going to the gym.


Complete this sentence: If I wasn’t a lawyer, I would be…

A cowgirl.


What do you love about your job?

I love that everyday brings on a new challenge and that as a lawyer you are constantly growing and learning to better yourself.
