Lawyer. Corrs Chambers Westgarth
I am currently a commercial lawyer at Corrs Chambers Westgarth, one of Australia's largest corporate law firms. My practice focuses on the development of major infrastructure projects, including road, rail (such as metro and light rail), renewable energy and social infrastructure. I act for the government and the private sector.
Prior to becoming a lawyer, I was a political advisor at the New South Wales Parliament, where I worked across a number of key portfolios, including transport, roads, infrastructure, police and education. Recently, I played a key role in the successful campaign to elect the new NSW Labor Leader.
I have a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Social Research and Policy (majoring in International Relations), from the University of New South Wales, where I studied on a full scholarship. I sit on the board of a local community centre in my hometown of Wollongong and am the Vice President of a legal advocacy body.
