What made you get into law?
I began my working life as a ballet dancer then completed a degree in psychology. I subsequently found myself wanting to be involved in social justice and to advocate for people in my community so I completed law school while working as a paralegal in various law firms around Melbourne. I started at Slater and Gordon in the Professional Standards and Risk team in 2020 and moved into our Epping personal injury team in 2021.
I have been practicing for two years and have previous experience in criminal defence, family law and insurance law. I now specialise in workers compensation and provide advice in statutory benefit disputes, impairment lump-sum claims, serious injury applications and common law negligence claims. I'm motivated each and every day by my clients – they inspire me with their resilience and determination and I work very hard to ensure the best outcome for them.
It's important to me to know who my clients are as people and how they are going with their injuries as well as their lives generally. I am meeting my clients at one of the most difficult times in their lives and it is important that I help them navigate the often overwhelming WorkCover and compensation schemes and guide them through the process in a way that is easy to understand. It is vital to me that none of my clients feel uncertain or unclear about their future and the progress of their claims. I enjoy interacting with my clients and feel very lucky to be able to assist them.
