In recent years I have enjoyed the opportunity to undertake a wide range of roles including high profile executive positions, and as a non-executive director. Some senior roles have included being the Chairman of Stanwell, non-executive director of Energy Resources of Australia Limited, CEO and Chairman roles at Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise Pty Ltd, a commissioner of the GasFields Commission of Queensland, and as President of the Royal Agricultural Society of Queensland.

Many of these roles have been very public and as such my ability to advocate, speak with, and importantly be trusted by both sides and all levels of government is a skillset that I can now use to great benefit for my clients. I am really enjoying the diverse nature of my work. I enjoy solving the legal needs of my clients but importantly, I want to assist business that might need strategy or business development, advocacy to government or others, or even just be a sounding board for advice of their business decisions.

I have worked in the legal industry for over 30 years and was admitted as a Solicitor in 1998. For most of my working career I have worked in my own “traditional bricks and mortar” law firms in Toowoomba, Gympie and Noosa. I have enjoyed working directly with clients and cherish becoming their trusted legal advisor. I really enjoy taking complex legal issues and making them easy to understand for my clients. I am very experienced in property matters but also enjoy other aspects of my legal practise including litigation, family law disputes and estate planning.

The opportunity for me to work with Sunland Legal in an online way that is adaptable to change (and coincides with my preferred working method – i.e. working where best suits me and the client) was a dream come true. I can now honestly say that I love my work and the way I practise law.

You can contact me on my mobile - 0438 837 338.

I was born in Charleville and raised on a grazing property between Charleville and Quilpie. I completed my schooling in Charleville and became a receptionist for Frank Jongkind & Co in 1998. I am a legal secretary and have completed courses in conveyancing, wills and estates and court procedures, as well as obtaining a Certificate in Legal Studies. In addition, I became a Justice of the Peace (Qualified) in 1999. I worked for Frank Jongkind & Co until 2002 when I moved to Brisbane for work for 1 year. My Love for the Charleville region convinced me to return in 2004 to continue working for Frank Jongkind & Co. I am Sunland Legal’s office manager and paralegal. My chief areas of responsibility are domestic conveyancing, debt collection, wills and estates.
