My passion for immigration law is rooted in my own immigration story. Born to Sri Lankan parents in Germany, I was raised in Canada and moved to New Zealand in my early teens.
I am acutely aware of the challenges associated with migration and work hard to navigate my clients through the immigration process as smoothly as possible.
Having worked as an Immigration Officer (Visa Services) and a Border Officer at Auckland International Airport, I understand both sides of the immigration process. I also have several years of experience working in various government roles in New Zealand. Prior to joining Stace Hammond, I was a self-employed Licensed Immigration Adviser.
I have a passion for community service and work closely with ethnic communities across New Zealand to foster and advance intercultural dialogue and understanding.
