Zoe takes a gap year - or two!

Zoe takes a gap year, or two!

Zoe Hibbard - Solicitor at Southern Waters LegalEverybody knows Zoe! One of our longest serving and most popular Solicitors, Zoe Hibbard, will be departing on a sabbatical to travel the world and work overseas…

After nearly 5 years working with the team at Southern Waters Legal, it is with both sadness and excitement that we bid farewell to Zoe, as she waves goodbye to the structured life of law and packs her bags for a spontaneous journey to explore the far corners of the earth.

Zoe first set foot in the door at Southern Waters Legal as a work-experience student in September 2010, where she worked alongside Leona Bennett in our Family Law division. Having made quite the impression, Zoe stayed on as a Paralegal until she graduated her University of Wollongong Law degree at the end of 2011.  Zoe completed her Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, was admitted as a Solicitor in August 2012, and has practiced at Southern Waters Legal ever since.

Zoe will hit the road in early July, first heading to Los Angeles before beginning travels throughout South and Central America. She’ll then spend some time in New York before heading to the UK, where she and her partner plan to set-up for a couple years working and living in ol’ London town.

“…I just want to go along for the ride. I don’t want to plan too much, especially given I am an avid planner, I just want to explore and see where it takes me…”

Knowing Zoe, we have no doubts she’ll enjoy herself, and we wish her all the best for a safe and exciting trip.
