After graduating, I pursued a career in legal practice with a top tier law firm and boutique commercial law firm across areas such as commercial litigation, corporate law and employment law, before moving into my current role as an Entrepreneur and owner of hospitality businesses. My Law degree has opened so many doors for me. I was invited to serve as Company Secretary on a medical research not-for-profit board, and also undertook a secondment in the banking and financial services sector. Studying Law also gave me the confidence to apply for a role as an editor at a publishing house, and I have later been able to merge that interest with my law studies, writing thought leadership pieces for law firms and articles for legal journals on a freelance basis
