My Career to Date
I started my legal career with a respected commercial, trust, and property firm in Lower Hutt before taking up an opportunity with Gibson Sheat in 2017.
My Recent Work
Professional Associations and Community Organisations
My approach to working with my clients
I am an affable and direct person, and make sure that we are all on the same page from our first meeting. I try to be available to discuss matters so that we address things early, and there is no need for unnecessary stress.
Most rewarding experience I've had at work
I find it most rewarding keeping strong relationships, such as with people I have assisted to purchase their first home, now using their equity to purchase their first investment property - and sometimes managing it themselves.
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given
Look after people and the rest will follow.
What stimulates me
I like to work through a problem thoroughly and logically to come to the answer which will hold up the best, or provides the best outcome.
What I enjoy outside of workI like to demolish and renovate property (mostly demolish) including the fun and trials that come with it.
I try to run when I can, otherwise walking around the waterfront in the crisp Wellington breeze each day.
I enjoy playing Ultimate Frisbee and racquet sports, and regularly enjoy being able to access the heart of craft beer producing right in the city.
If I wasn’t a lawyer I’d be
Training and breeding dogs full time – watch this space.
