I commenced my legal practice in the early 90s working for Cuningham Taylor in Christchurch where I was involved in a wide range of civil, family, employment and education disputes.

In 1994 I became an Associate of the firm of Parry Field with responsibilities for growing the civil litigation arm of that firm. Following my move to Tauranga in 1999 I worked at a Tauranga firm where I became an Associate working in the specialist areas of relationship property, trust and estate litigation.

Following a career break for a growing family I joined the HJL family law team in 2013. My experience and expertise is primarily directed towards relationship property and trust disputes

My governance work in the community complements my strategic thinking that is fundamental to my legal practice. I am on the Boards of Sport BOP and Triathlon NZ. I enjoy swimming, biking and running in our fantastic Bay of Plenty.
