In between juggling work, family and home, I love spending time with my children at the park or the pool, and rediscovering a long-lost delight in drawing as I encourage my eldest daughter to develop her passion. I try to find time for myself doing yoga and (less often these days) reading, and when my extended family gets together we enjoy sharing cryptic crosswords and board games.
I grew up in Mundubbera and moved to Brisbane to study law and science. I was admitted as a solicitor in Queensland in 2007 and spent 10 years working for a large Brisbane CBD law firm before I joined Murdoch Lawyers. Since starting work as a graduate I have practiced almost exclusively in the specialised areas of estate planning, superannuation, business succession and taxation.
I love the challenge that these areas bring in drawing on such a range of complex areas of commonwealth and state law, including succession, superannuation, trusts, corporations, partnership, bankruptcy, family, taxation and stamp duty laws. My passion is to combine the intellectual challenge and technical precision that this work demands with a strong client focus, to craft practical solutions in a way that meets each client’s needs.
