Kellie is a barrister and accredited mediator and arbitrator. A large proportion of Kellie’s practice is in the various employment and discrimination jurisdictions. She also accepts briefs in administrative, trade practices, common law, and restraints of trade cases. She is a qualified arbitrator and mediator and has advised and appeared in coronial inquiries. Prior to becoming a barrister, Kellie dabbled with the idea of becoming an architect and gained an Honours degree in Communications, however, she commenced Law and found her calling.

As a solicitor, Kellie was an Associate at Dibbs Barker Gosling (now Dibbs Barker), and specialised in employment and discrimination law. From 1997 until 2003, Kellie was a member of the NSW Administrative Decisions Tribunal, sitting in the Equal Opportunity Division.

Before she was a lawyer, Kellie worked in both private enterprise, the community sector and government, the latter including the NSW Office of Youth Affairs, the NSW Department of Industrial Relations and the NSW Board of Vocational Education and Training. She also ran her own consulting company providing services to private enterprise, government and the community sector. As a result Kellie is able to assist clients to get the most out of her advice by making sure she understands each client’s particular circumstances. She continues to guest lecture in law at the University of Technology, Sydney, having previously lectured in the Communications faculty in social and political theory

Kellie applies her keen logic to every argument, and works towards the best resolution of legal issues for solicitors and their clients. Working closely with her clients, Kellie identifies their goals and desired outcomes. In this way, she is able to clearly communicate to them the extent to which the law can help.

Kellie actively organises and participates in Greenway’s CPD/CLE program. She is also regularly asked to present papers and seminars. Currently, she is writing a paper on the recent public discussion around the abolition/amendment of section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act.

Outside of chambers, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, running, yoga, painting and music.
