Michaela graduated from Edinburgh Napier University with an Honours Degree in Sport and Exercise Science, majoring in Sport Psychology. She worked in management in a private health care clinic before taking a career break, travelling around the world.
Wanting a new challenge, Michaela worked as an assistant in a small family-run law firm, which covered areas such as conveyancing, probate and marriage. She joined Royds Withy King in May 2016 as a legal assistant, before becoming a paralegal in March 2017.
Michaela particularly enjoys cases representing children within public proceedings. As their welfare is paramount, it is “rewarding to know the positive difference made to their wellbeing.”
Outside of work, Michaela enjoys travel, the theatre, food and drink. She is also a member of the Oxford Young Professionals Society.
