What made you decide to become a legal executive?

I have been interested in law and the legal system since I was a child and often tried to gain more understanding of how it all applied in life. I began my study at VUW in Psychology and Law, moved to Auckland a few years later with family and took a break from study. I soon went in search of something to dig my teeth into again and came across the Legal Executive Diploma. Distance learning was a great way to study while busy with family life and full-time work, completing my last assignment the day that my son was born (phew!).

Where did you study and what was your favourite subject?

Victoria University of Wellington and Open Polytechnic. Anthropology papers were my overall favourites, with Psychology a close second.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

We have three choices in life – give up, give in, or give it all you’ve got.

Do you have any hobbies / interests outside of work?

Spending time with my family and generally anything outdoors - running, swimming and exploring new places.

If I wasn’t a legal executive I would be...

A full-time mum.

What do you love about your job?

Interacting with and helping so many people and families.
