Prior to coming to the Bar, Elizabeth practised as a Registered Nurse at a large metropolitan hospital in her hometown of Sydney, Australia. She completed a two year training programme in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). This experience gives her unique insight into complex family problems and the difficulties individuals have in navigating bureaucracy when dealing with extreme stress, trauma and mental or physical ill health.
Elizabeth undertook all her legal studies in London. Alongside this, she participated in the Vocalise pro-bono scheme which involved teaching debating in schools and prisons. She has debated at the European Universities Debating Championship in 2017 and the World Universities Debating Championship in 2018, as well as mooting in the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Competition 2017 in Vienna.
Her broad interests are reflected by various summer internships, including at the Bar Pro Bono Unit (now ‘Advocate’), Medecins Sans Frontieres in Madrid and ACI (The Financial Markets Association).
