The incredible Sarah Jones  is a Senior Associate  at O'Sullivan Davies  where she practices in Family Law .

Sarah says she joined the WALA committee because “ I wanted to contribute to the advancement and support of women in the profession. There is so much being achieved by women and I wanted to know about it and share it with others”

The hardworking Sarah has  two roles - Membership Officer and Chair of the Communications Working Group where she is ably assisted by Daniela Ion, Genevieve Smit, Chloe Samuels, Danielle Hadida, Jessica Stokes.  She is responsible for the administration side of membership and communications to members, for producing E-News newsletters (like the one you are reading now!) on a monthly basis and overseeing projects like Without Prejudice, our history of women in the profession, publication and promotion of the benefits of membership and of events organised by our other working groups.

Sarah and her working group have so far this year produced E-News each month, managed the transition to a new membership structure, received approval and funding  to create a new website for WLWA, commenced an archival project of historical materials related to WLWA and women in the legal profession, promoted WLWA to potential new members, promoted and managed ticket sales for a number of events, produced online articles for our website.

The Communications Working Group’s biggest project is creation of a new website. This should be delivered prior to our AGM in October 2018.

Sarah says, “If I could get away with playing latin music (bachata, salsa, reggaeton) all day in my office, I would. Teaching social dance was my second job until I had kids (which made it a lot harder to get to evening classes!) and I still love the music”

Her proudest achievement is “Any day when I feel I haven't dropped any balls when juggling family, kids, job and self is an achievement for me!”
