About Me

I am a specialist immigration lawyer with a valid practicing certificate and a background as a fully licensed immigration adviser. My journey into immigration law began with my studies at Victoria University and further developed during my tenure as a Solicitor in Nelson. Since early 2019, I have dedicated myself full-time to providing immigration advice.


With a wealth of practical experience working with clients from diverse countries, languages, and backgrounds, my legal training equips me to anticipate potential issues and challenges in various situations.


Outside of my professional life, I'm an avid explorer of New Zealand's stunning landscapes, indulging in the quintessential Kiwi pastime of hiking. I also have a deep love for travel and enjoy sharing my experiences with others. This passion for discovery and connection translates into the genuine and secure experience I offer my clients, whether they're looking to make New Zealand their long-term home or simply visiting.
