Grace decided to pursue a career in Law while undertaking a Bachelor of International and Global Studies at the University of Sydney. During her degree, Grace realised that one of the most direct routes to affecting social change was to work with the mechanics which underlie society. She realised these underlying mechanics are the legislation, regulation and precedent that comprise the legal system, so after completing her undergraduate degree in 2013 she went on to study post-graduate Law. She graduated from her Juris Doctor at the University of Sydney in 2017.

Prior to joining Shine Lawyers, Grace worked in refugee law, facilitating the subsidised legal representation of asylum seekers applying for protection visas in Australia. She believes that her background in the social justice space and one-on-one advocacy experience enables her to connect meaningfully and empathetically with individual group members.

Grace loves that class actions call to the fore government and corporate accountability and that, when litigated properly, they can affect systemic change within society and rectify power imbalances. She considers class actions to be one of the most efficient, effective ways to ensure access to justice for all.
