I grew up in the small country town of Quirindi and was never sure what I wanted to do after school. With all of my siblings attending the University of Newcastle before me, studying various health degrees, I seemed destined to follow in their footsteps. However, in an effort to be the black sheep of my family, I decided not to enrol in a health degree and instead commenced a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts in 2017 at the prompting of various teachers and friends.
Whilst not sure if I was going to enjoy law, I quickly found myself falling in love with the critical thinking required in the legal profession and began to develop a real desire to utilise my skills to assist people in a complex world.
I was fortunate enough to obtain a job in a small generalist firm in Newcastle, where I was predominately responsible for Conveyancing and Wills and Estates. This was a fantastic learning opportunity and showed me that my passion in law was helping real individual clients instead of representing faceless corporations.
In late 2021 I was offered a position as a paralegal at The Law Office of Conrad Curry, with the opportunity to work directly with highly experienced and accomplished solicitors. Accepting the job was the next step in continuing my legal education and has allowed me to continue my passion of working with real people, for real results.
In my spare time you will find me volunteering with my local Church, my faith shaping how I think and act. I love spending time with friends and with my arts degree, majoring in politics, philosophy and religion, I am always up for a deep chat. I am also a mad sports fan, watching and playing any that I can, the more unique the better.
