Office:          CBD

I joined Saunders & Co in July 2023 as a Solicitor in the litigation team.   I completed my Bachelor of Science in April 2017 and my Bachelor of Laws in December 2020 at the University of Canterbury.  I was admitted to the bar in April 2021.


I am based in the City Office and primarily assist in matters relating to both general civil and criminal litigation.  I was drawn to litigation as a result of my desire for fair resolution and justice for those that are unable to obtain it themselves.  I believe that clear and concise advice to clients need not be complicated, and I enjoy communicating with and providing assistance to clients.


While I do not believe that all matters necessitate the Court’s intervention, I thoroughly enjoy going to court to advocate for my clients and provide my best argument for their cause.  


Outside of the Office, I enjoy being active and caring for animals.
