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 proudest moment was winning Gold at Sail Auckland which is a Grade 1 International Event. I won a gold medal and only three people won all events.”
