I joined William Roberts Lawyers in 2019 and have over four years’ experience working as a paralegal. I am currently assisting the litigation team with motor vehicle accident matters.

Prior to William Roberts Lawyers, I worked at boutique firms, where I primarily undertook legal research for appeals on decisions relating to refugee and asylum seeker status, submission of applications for permanent residency, contesting revocations of citizenship, and finalising labour agreements and working on workers compensation claims.

I also mentored high school refugee students through the LEAP Program and provided information about future study and employment opportunities. I am actively involved in the Global Leadership Program at Macquarie University, a program that encourages individuals to strengthen their interpersonal skills and knowledge on international news, politics, and economies.
