Paralegal | Viberts Law Firm

What did you want to be when you were 8?

A wildlife documentary cameraman.

Favourite way to relax? 

I love to be in the sea and find being in the water very relaxing. While sometimes not so relaxing, I enjoy surfing to wind down. When the sea is flat, I love to run.  Having said that, Thai food and rubbish films always hit the spot.  

Best bit of Jersey? 

The variety. Whether you get enjoyment from being at the beach, wondering around rural areas or enjoying the town centre. There’s something for everyone. 

Favourite restaurant? 

Awabi – try the cauliflower and all will become clear. 

Favourite item and why? 

My Yeti travel cup. You could forget about the coffee for days and it will still be hot. 

Why are you interested in studying law? 

The study of law brings into question aspects of communities, social norms and fundamental rights. While being intellectually challenging, gaining the experience and knowledge to have a tangible impact in people’s lives is something I find compelling. I have always had the ability for debating and thought studying law would be a good way to utilise these skills.

What future skills will you need to learn? 

I would like to improve being able to assimilate large pieces of information from various sources very quickly. Seems I can never be fast enough! 

What advice would you give someone interested in law?

Make the most of those opportunities! You never know what or who you might stumble across. 

Tell us a fun fact

Prior to working at Viberts, I worked on a farm picking potatoes and assisting with maintenance.
