Coralie loves to dance. She particularly enjoys Latin dance and the bachata and the salsa are her favourites. When Coralie steps onto the dance floor she always brings energy and passion and she shows a perfect blend of confidence, flair and poise.
The qualities that Coralie displays as a dancer also describe her style as a lawyer. Coralie is passionate about being a lawyer and helping people when they have suffered the breakdown of a relationship or experienced the passing of a loved one. Her confidence, flair and poise as a legal practitioner stem from her strong academic knowledge, having completed a Bachelor of Laws at the University of Waikato in New Zealand and being awarded entry to the Golden Key International Honour Society. She was also the recipient of a Prime Minister’s Scholarship which provided her with the opportunity to study at the Shanghai International University.
Coralie is admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of Queensland and the High Court of Australia and is a member of the Queensland Law Society, the Gold Coast Family Law Pathways Network. In addition to practising as a lawyer in Australia Coralie also has previous experience working in the legal industry in New Zealand.
