Why did you become a lawyer?

I worked as a speech pathologist for a number of years but early on I realised that it wasn’t my ideal job. I was always interested in the law and love a challenge so I applied for, and was accepted into, a graduate law degree. Completing my law degree in 3 years was certainly a challenge but it was one I enjoyed. I worked as a paralegal throughout my degree and legal practice felt like a ‘natural fit’ for me.

My practice area is commercial litigation, it is constantly changing and no two matters are ever the same. This keeps practice interesting and I am always learning – which is incredibly motivating

Why Moray & Agnew?

Prior to joining Moray & Agnew, I worked for a mid-tier firm in Sydney and when moving to Newcastle I was looking for a firm of similar size with a great reputation. The commercial team in Newcastle is dynamic and proactive with a diverse client base. The partnership is supportive and collaborative which, as a new partner, I am grateful for.

My practice primarily involves complex multi-party litigation which I find interesting and satisfying. This allows me work with a team of solicitors, including external counsel, and I love how each team member brings their views to the table to form the case strategy. Morays has given me many opportunities and I am thankful to work with a such a dedicated and knowledgeable team of solicitors.  

What do you enjoy outside work?

I have three young children who I love spending time with and ferrying to their many and varied activities. The beach is my happy place and I can usually be found swimming during summer. I also enjoy camping (usually in spots without WIFI) and am currently planning our next big trip to WA.
