Without mentioning your job title, how would you describe what it is you do now?
I’m a problem solver who has the pleasure of working with a team of highly successful and motivated lawyers. Together we assist our clients to resolve their liability insurance claims as quickly and commercially as possible.
What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?
I was a girl from the country trying to make it big in the city. Becoming a lawyer was a dream come true!
What are the first three words you think of when you hear the word ‘diversity’?
A beautiful world.
What do you think it will take to develop truly diverse thinking within the legal industry?
Continuing the momentum, we are on the way as we celebrate and promote all genders and race. In the future there will be no easy way to answer “describe a typical partner of a Law Firm”.
