Christina joined the Corporate and Commercial practice at Norman Waterhouse in 2019.
She holds a Bachelor Degree of Applied Science, a Bachelor Honours Degree of Law and Legal Practice (first class) and a Masters of Taxation with the University of New South Wales. For tax law enthusiasts like Christina, there is nothing more exciting than unravelling a complex tax question and breaking it down into something that is simple to understand and apply in a practical way. On the back of a varied life and career path, Christina feels she is ideally situated at Norman Waterhouse Lawyers to apply her significant academic knowledge, broad work experience and contagious enthusiasm to our clients’ unique business circumstances.
Following her admission to the Supreme Court of South Australia in 2006, Christina practised at a boutique law firm specialising in taxation and commercial law. Between 2005 and 2018, Christina also held several board member positions with both professional and community organisations, during which time she gained significant experience of business management and development, securing and implementation of Government grant projects, advocacy, law reform, regulatory compliance and corporate governance in the not-for-profit sector.
Prior to discovering her passion for the law in her late 20s, Christina practised for 10 years as an allied health professional in both private medical practices and large public hospitals in Australia (Sunshine Coast, Sydney and Adelaide) and in London, United Kingdom. She is very well travelled and speaks conversational German.
