Professional Associations and Community OrganisationsI am an Affiliate member of the NZ Institute of Legal Executives.
My approach to working with my clientsI am friendly and sympathetic to my clients and I'm a good listener.
The best piece of advice I've ever been given"Whatever you commit to, always give your best."
What stimulates meI'm in the Estates Team, so a lot of our clients are going through a sad time in their lives. I would like to think that we can help them move on. Personally, I try to achieve job satisfaction and a balance between working life and family.
What I enjoy outside of workI enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I like travelling, theatre, going to the movies and walking.
If I wasn't a legal executive I'd be...A nurse, because I like helping people.
