1. Tell us about your jour­ney to work­ing in the legal indus­try?

When I left school I had no idea what I want­ed to do but I knew that I loved help­ing peo­ple. I went to busi­ness col­lege at Pass­mores in New­cas­tle, com­plet­ed a dual diplo­ma in Legal/Real Estate Stud­ies and from that I became intrigued with the legal pro­fes­sion.

Upon fin­ish­ing my course, I was employed in New­cas­tle where my love for con­veyanc­ing grew so much that I enrolled at Mac­quar­ie Uni­ver­si­ty to become a Licensed Con­veyancer. I feel that buy­ing a house is one of the major life events and I love that I can assist peo­ple through­out the whole process.

I love every­thing about Port Mac­quar­ie. All my fam­i­ly is here and that is very impor­tant for me. I love that we are sur­round­ed by beach­es and liv­ing only a short dri­ve away in Wau­chope I love that we are able to just relax on prop­er­ty with our fam­i­ly and friends.  We spend a lot of time with our kids rid­ing motor­bikes, hors­es and just enjoy­ing the out­doors.

2. If there is one piece of advice you could give some­one in rela­tion to the Legal Pro­fes­sion and its ser­vices, what would it be? 

As a younger per­son, we don’t pri­ori­tise our life plan­ning. I think it’s impor­tant espe­cial­ly once start­ing a fam­i­ly and buy­ing prop­er­ty to have your Will and life doc­u­ments in order.

3. What is a quote/saying/mantra you live by?  

Live like you mean it.”
