What did you study at university?

Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of International Studies at the University of Sydney

Current occupation and career details
I’m currently Senior Legal Counsel at 10ViacomCBS, specialising in the production, acquisition and distribution of content across all platforms (including free and pay television (Channel 10, Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central etc.), streaming (Paramount+), catch-up TV and podcasts) and the engagement of on-screen talent. I started my legal career in private practice (King & Wood Mallesons), before moving in-house to Stan (where I spent time in both a legal counsel and commercial content acquisition role).    

Involvement during your time at College

It’s safe to say I wholeheartedly threw myself into the College social life, St Andrew’s becoming a home away from home for me. I was also involved in Rose Bowl athletics and the formal committee.  

Interests/passions relating to the Alumni Society and St Andrew’s College
Living at St Andrew’s is such a unique, rewarding and formative experience. Residents, both current and former, benefit greatly from an active alumni – in particular, I’m passionate about the role alumni can play in the College’s professional development programs. Certainly, from my personal perspective, I hope that sharing experiences and networks with young law students can help provide a runway for their careers. From an alumni perspective, the College community and the friends and opportunities it provides, continue far beyond graduation – I’m passionate about helping alumni stay connected to this ever-expanding community.  As we celebrate 20 years of undergraduate women this year, it’s even more exciting to see what the Alumni Society can achieve!

Interests outside of work
I live and breathe media and entertainment, so my work tends to infiltrate all parts of my life in the best possible way – it’s quite satisfying to see the fruits of your labour on screen at night!  
Outside of work, you’ll find me at the beach, gardening or walking our two French bulldogs. When time and enthusiasm levels permit, I also love trail running.
