While studying, Jaye enjoyed being a volunteer caseworker at the Community Law Centre, and also gained some experience in the employment law sphere.
Jaye has spent time living in the UK and has worked in a range of industries both prior to and during her university studies.
She is looking forward to gaining experience in resource management, employment law, and civil litigation while completing her Professional Legal Studies and working towards admission to the bar in 2021.

Jaye grew up in Rangiora, and has spent the past four years living in Christchurch while completing her law degree at the University of Canterbury. Jaye is excited to make the most of everything the Taranaki region has to offer, particularly the beautiful beaches and walkways.
Jaye spends a lot of her free time in the gym and has recently started competing in bodybuilding in the NZIFBB. She also likes to surf, although only if the sea is warm enough.
