As a Sunshine Coast local, Tenielle completed school in Caloundra before fronting the commute to complete her studies at QUT in Brisbane.
Tenielle was admitted as a lawyer in late-2017 after graduating from QUT in mid-2017. During her time as a student Tenielle worked in law as a paralegal, volunteered at the Suncoast Community Legal Service and lead QUT’s elite dance team.
Tenielle was QUT’s highest achiever in Succession Law in 2017, was awarded the De Groots Wills and Estates Lawyers’ Prize and was then personally invited, by the Honourable Margaret McMurdo AC, to the W A Lee Equity Lecture and Dinner.
Before her commencement with us in January, Tenielle was working with another firm, covering various areas of litigation and building and construction law. Tenielle appreciates that litigation and deceased estate matters can be stressful and uncertain processes, which is why she takes a down to earth approach and provides practical advice, her clients understand.
On the weekends she can be found camping, spending time with family and friends, or maybe even adventuring overseas if she’s lucky.
