Vanessa Mitchell

Conveyancing Assistant, Palmerston

This time round, Vanessa started with Ward Keller as a part-time Conveyancing Assistant in March 2018.

She first worked for the firm almost 20 years ago doing ‘a bit of everything’ for a few years: starting as a receptionist then working through roles of settlements clerk, conveyancing assistant and legal secretary.

In her hiatus from Ward Keller, Vanessa moved to Brisbane then went overseas for a few years, where she ‘imported a husband from Scotland’.

‘We were back in Darwin, and I’d had a few different jobs. I was thinking about getting back into conveyancing when the role at Ward Keller came up. So here I am!’ she said.

Vanessa supports conveyancers Theresa and Kim in Ward Keller’s Palmerston office. ‘I’m really enjoying being back’, she said.

Vanessa is a busy mum to two boys. ‘I’m really interested in health and also in property; we have two investment properties of our own’, she said.
