Without mentioning your job title, how would you describe what it is you do now (whether at home, work, in the community, etc.)?

I provide women with information and legal advice about their options to help them make an informed and safe decision for themselves and their children.

What are the first three words you think of when you hear the word ‘diversity’?

Inclusivity, representative, meaningful.

What do you think it will take to develop truly diverse thinking within the legal industry?

To have meaningful connections and conversations with diverse people in the legal industry, and the desire and willingness to make meaningful changes to allow those from a diverse background to be able to achieve the same opportunities as their peers at all levels of the legal industry.

What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?

To help disadvantaged members of our community that have barriers and difficulties with accessing legal assistance such as homelessness, literacy or financial barriers.
