Biography

I am a Lawyer in the Tax controversy team at KPMG Law, currently on study leave to undertake the Masters of Laws (LLM) program. Before joining KPMG, I completed a double degree in Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Commerce from Monash University. I have always engaged in mentoring and extra-curricular activities to enhance my learning experience. During my undergrad, I was a Law Mentor for the Monash Law Student’s Society, Vice President of Monash Oaktree Foundation where I organised charity and networking events, Director of Member Development and Education, Monash Finance Association, where I led publication of the first Education Guide for new finance students, and Paralegal Volunteer at community legal services where I provided legal assistance to disadvantaged clients.

As President of the MLMSA, I look forward to using my skills from the past roles to promote activities that support academic, professional and social growth for all Law students. Together with my executive committee, I aim to foster mentoring activities and increase networking between MLM and JD students, academics and the wider legal community. I also hope to promote social and professional networks between domestic and international MLM students, as I strongly believe that it would lead to personal and professional growth for all involved.
