Genevieve commenced work with us in July 2005. She was initially employed to update our reference manuals. Genevieve very quickly mastered this complex system and in what seemed like no time was asking for more work! Genevieve is now responsible for the archive maintenance of all our client matter files and the updating of matter codes into our archiving database.
In her own words Genevieve tells what working for us has meant for her: “Starting work at Culshaw Miller Lawyers has motivated me and increased my confidence. It has assisted me to dream new dreams some of which I have already achieved. Starting my new job motivated me to work towards regaining my speech, since my stroke left me without the ability to speak. My work allows me to take on new challenges, achieve milestones as well as attend social functions. My new found confidence motivated me to tackle sailing at an international event in Melbourne where I achieved Sportswoman of the Competition and second in the solo sailing division.”
Genevieve is an inspiration to all of us and a valued member of our team.
