Qualifications

Bachelor of Law

I am excited to have joined the team at Cooney Lees Morgan and look forward to continuing to assist clients from all walks of life. 

I began my legal career over 12 years ago, starting as a legal secretary at a busy property focused firm in Hamilton, while completing my legal executive diploma. After deciding law was the right career path for me, I started my law degree and moved to Auckland where I worked as a legal executive at a boutique Ponsonby firm, while completing my degree. Being in a small firm exposed me to many areas of law and allowed me to broaden my knowledge and experience. 
 
After almost eight years in Auckland, my husband and I moved to Papamoa with our young boy to enjoy the more laid back lifestyle.
 
My main areas of work include asset planning, leasing, financing arrangements, trust work and all areas of property law.
