Tell us about your history at Southern Waters Legal.
I joined Southern Waters Legal in early 2010. I had previously worked at a local law firm for 3 years where I gained invaluable experience in general practice and Wills & Estates. After a brief stint at a Family Law firm out of the local area, I quickly realised my passion was assisting clients in the area of Wills & Estates.
What areas do you work on at Southern Waters Legal?
Working in the local area at Southern Waters Legal I enjoy providing clients with Estate, Incapacity & Business Succession Planning solutions and providing clients with peace of mind. I also enjoy advising clients on the law relating to Deceased Estates. I understand that losing a loved one is very difficult. Often clients are confused and need legal assistance through this difficult phase; however I take pleasure in having the ability and benefit of helping clients through this process.
We understand you are studying as well.
I am currently completing a Masters of Applied Law (Wills & Estates) and enjoy the challenge of balancing full time work and study.
A little birdie tells us if you weren’t a lawyer you may have been a full time gymnast?
Yes it is true! Before my career as a solicitor, I spent 11 years as a Rhythmic Gymnast competing at state and national competitions, and was twice NSW State Champion.
