Sharon is one of the teams commercial lawyers and also doubles up as the firm’s office manager. Unlike your typical lawyer, Sharon did not enter the legal profession immediately after graduating from Notre Dame University with a Bachelor of Law/Commerce – instead Sharon set her sights on a career in hospitality which saw her travelling the world for 5 years and culminated in her appointment as Assistant Food and Beverage Manager at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne where she was responsible for a supervising team of over 300 staff.
A twist of fate saw Sharon return to Perth where her passion for business and solving legal problems for business led her to join the team at Your LegalHQ where she has continued to build her knowledge and skills to meet the needs of a wide variety of business clients.
