I began practising law in Wellington in 1984 and have worked in private practice here in the Wairarapa for 14 years.
In 2018 I was delighted when Barry Keys and I became partners in Taverner Keys & Co, a practice that he had been a partner in for 55 years.
I have always enjoyed the type of law or the areas of law that are the most relevant to the clients in our community:
- matters relating to agriculture, horticulture and rural land
- commercial and small business
- matters that relate to us as we age
- wills and estates
I love to talk to my clients.
I have particular knowledge and interest in English pottery, collections, orcharding, building/renovation, tramping and travelling.
I look forward to working with you.
I am Wairarapa-born and moved to Wellington in my early 20s, where I worked for over ten years. I then moved back home to raise my daughters with my husband and to be closer to my family and friends. I relocated to Carterton and have lived in a lifestyle block for over 15 years, all the while volunteering and working in the community. Of those years, ten were spent working at Public Trust and for Age Concern.
I joined Taverner Keys in early 2022. I am managing wills and estates while working towards my qualification as a registered legal executive and being a full-time mum.
As I continue my professional development, I am eager to apply my skills and knowledge to assist clients with their legal needs. With a strong attention to detail and excellent communication skills, I strive to provide exceptional service and build lasting relationships with our clients.
I have a particular interest in gardening, travelling, cooking, fishing and doing outdoor activities with my family.
