Evie holds a B Commerce/Laws (hons) from the University of Canberra and a Master of Laws from the Australian National University and was admitted in 2014. Evie speaks [average] Cantonese and [even more average] Mandarin, but is taking advantage of Mandarin lessons offered at King & Wood Mallesons to slowly improve!
Evie is newly connected with the Asian Australian Lawyers Association and is keen to see the ACT Branch grow and inspire others to connect in and contribute to promoting and raising awareness of the importance of a culturally diverse legal profession.
As a local Canberran, Evie is passionate about giving back to the community and initiatives that inspire people to lead at every level. Evie has a keen interest in human rights, volunteering and giving back, while aiming to inspire others to do the same.
Outside of the law, Evie is a volunteer with the Australian Red Cross – a national board member (term ending in November 2020) and an ACT Divisional Advisory Board member. Evie is also a qualified yoga teacher, teaching in Canberra yoga studios and is passionate about promoting wellness and wellbeing, particularly with those who experience stress and burnout, which is prevalent in the legal community.
