Senior Legal Executive

I began working for Wood Ruck Manukau in 1998.  I became a qualified legal executive and practice in the areas of Property Law, especially Subdivisions, Succession Planning and Estate Administration.  I am currently studying part-time to complete my law degree and am obtaining excellent grades in the process.

I joined Rice Craig with Lance Wiltshire's team in September 2018.  I am very experienced in Property Law matters, working with Lance, and pride myself in delivering prompt and accurate results in a time manner, ensuring that clients are kept fully informed in the process.

I have a busy life with work, study and looking after a young family.  At the weekend, I am often found on the side of a soccer field, cheering on one of my children.
