Kilrush, Co. Clare, she set up as a sole practitioner from her home in Foxrock, Dublin in 1985. She offered her professional services in the areas of Conveyancing, Wills & Probate. This was a lifestyle choice as she managed her professional career around her growing family. In 2004 she joined BCM Hanby Wallace (now Byrne Wallace), as Partner with responsibility for the Private Client Department. After a successful 3 years, she succumbed to the lure of the independence of a sole practitioner and returned to practice from home in Foxrock where she remained until her recent merger with Notley Solicitors.
