What made you decide to work at a law firm?

I always thought a law firm would be an exciting and interesting place to work. I like helping and communicating with people and I enjoy administrative duties also so when I luckily got given the opportunity to work at Dewhirst Law I was more than happy to jump on board.

Where did you go to school and what was your favourite subject?

I went to Whanganui High School. My favourite subject was either English or Psychology.

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

Strive for progress not perfection.

Do you have any hobbies / interests outside of work?

I love hanging out with friends and family, going out for dinner, travelling, going for walks and mainly any kind of activity that involves being outdoors.

If I wasn’t working at a law firm I would be...

I would love to work behind the scenes for the police department, I love a crime documentary! Or a social worker. 

What do you love about your job?

That I learn something new every day.
