How it began...
First came the toy store
I loved my career as a government lawyer but, like lots of my clients, I couldn't ignore the itch to start my own business. I started an online toy store whilst on maternity leave and grew that business for 3 years before selling it.
How I can help
Trade mark specialist
Having met lots of amazing business owners in my 3 years in business, it was a natural progression for me to merge my legal skills and love of business to become a Trade Marks Attorney. Now I get to work with creative, clever and dedicated business owners everyday!
I understand that building a brand takes time, money and whole lot of effort. Your brand is like your baby. You dream it, create it and bring it into the world. My job is to help you to protect it and keep it alive.
Who I work with
Businesses of all sizes
My clients are new, small businesses that are in the startup phase. Many are wanting to secure the legal rights to their business name before investing in branding, websites and packaging.
My clients are also emerging leaders in their industries who are building a successful, profitable brand. They’ve invested time, effort and a whole lot of heart and soul into building their brand and they know they’ve struck a chord with their customers.
My clients are taking their business to a more professional level by engaging experts who can help them to protect what they’ve created.
Fun facts about me
I HAVE A BACHELOR OF ADVANCED SCIENCE
My first degree was a Bachelor of Advanced Science, majoring in Anatomy and Physiology. I loved every second of this degree but have never used it professionally (though it is useful knowledge to have in everyday life).
MY LIFE IS FULL OF BOYS
I married a man and then had three sons. Both my husband and I have only 1 sibling, a brother each and we also have 3 nephews (and one lone niece). Our 2 dogs are even male! It's lucky I'm a bit of a tomboy.
I LOVE COOKING
I love to entertain and I'll happily spend days cooking in preparation for a celebration. I'll attempt to cook anything ... with some successes and some failures. Thankfully I live with enthusiastic guinea pigs who are happy to try anything!
