Solicitor at the North Queensland Women’s Legal Service
I’m renowned for: My lack of cooking skills. I once managed to burn boiled eggs.
Only a local would know… Magnetic Island is the place to be at Easter but particularly the annual ‘surf club party’ at Alma Bay on Good Friday.
My most memorable holiday was… in 2015 when I did a solo tour of Ireland, the UK and Europe.
Right now I wish I was… enjoying a Guinness in Ireland.
My favourite day is: Anzac Day and attending the march on the Strand.
The biggest influence in my life was/is: My parents. My dad is caring, selfless and easy going. He is the ultimate quiet achiever, always doing things for others without asking for recognition. My mother is a talented artist and has worked hard to build a career around her skillset while being dedicated to her family. I wouldn’t be where I am today without my parents.
The funniest thing that ever happened to me was… I was attacked by a magpie while out walking. I didn’t find it funny when I was running for dear life but looking back now it would have been hilarious to watch.
Someone famous I met was: Rosie Batty. I met her at an Ending Family Violence Conference and had the privilege of speaking to her about the issues we face in Townsville around Domestic and Family Violence. Through my role at NQWLS we advocate for the protection of women who are experiencing domestic violence.
My motto is: Come what may.
