Surrey joined the CR Law team in April 2019 after completing her studies at the University of Waikato, having a baby girl in 2018 and deciding to move home to the Manawatu to be with family. Surrey works from our Palmerston North office with the Partners in our Commercial Team.

Throughout her degree Surrey tutored at many different levels including all NCEA levels and legal papers at the University. Surrey loves teaching and uses this skill to connect with clients in a meaningful way and communicate often complex information at a level everyone can understand. Surrey strongly believes that creating positive relationships with clients, other practitioners and support staff is the key to a successful and fulfilling career in law.

Surrey grew up on a dairy farm in the Manawatu and has strong community ties. She has loved returning to the Manawatu and strengthening these relationships. Surrey’s interests include spending time with her fiancé and daughter and sport.
