I am a lawyer admitted to practice in Queensland and New York. In 2005 I was expecting our first child so moved to a business development and marketing role at White & Case in Hong Kong. In 2008 I was promoted to manage the marketing team across five offices in Asia.
In 2012 I returned to Australia with our family and joined MinterEllison as a national business development specialist focusing on clients and industry groups.
I left in 2017 to help lawyers and firms by coaching people to build sustainable and enduring careers in law without sacrificing other aspects of their lives. Through this experience, and long discussions with many generous people about how things could be better, our plan for Lacuna began to form.
As a co-founder of Lacuna, I work with independent lawyers to bring focus and clarity to their career objectives, build in their other goals and commitments, then develop a plan and provide the support needed to set them up for success.
I am happiest at work when helping others to progress their careers, achieve their goals and build successful and rewarding careers and businesses.
Seeing people succeed gives me the greatest career satisfaction – it is why I do what I do.
