As a family lawyer, I have the ability to help people through what is one of the most difficult and stressful times of their lives. It is this aspect of my work that I find the most satisfying.
I understand that family is the most important part of people’s lives and I approach each matter with empathy and compassion. At the same time, I advocate strongly for my clients and focus on guiding them calmly towards the best possible result for their individual needs.
I provide clear, sensible and practical advice to my clients. It is always my aim to finalise each dispute as quickly, cost-effectively and pragmatically as possible.
When not at work, I love spending time with my husband and three children, enjoying our beautiful South Coast beaches, socialising, running and relaxing with a good wine.

I have practised exclusively in family law since 2013 and became an Accredited Family Law Specialist in 2017.
After graduating from the University of Wollongong, I worked locally in Wollongong for 3 years and found a pull towards family law.
I then spent 7 years working in a specialist family law team at a national law firm in the Melbourne CBD. There, I worked closely with many highly experienced and respected mentors and experts in the family law field which provided me with significant specialist experience.
I have advised clients about all aspects of family law including:
Parenting arrangements (including parenting plans, parenting orders, local and international relocation, surrogacy and adoption)
Property settlements (married and de facto/same sex relationships)
Financial agreements (before, during or after marriage or a de facto relationship)
Complex financial matters including those with corporate structures and trusts, bankruptcy, company disputes and taxation/corporate issues
Child support arrangements (including administrative assessments, child support agreements and adult child maintenance)
