The Director of Ascend Admin Australia began her career as a legal secretary with a small firm in Cronulla in 1991, working primarily in personal injury, wills and probate, conveyancing, and family law; she was able to develop her skills across different areas of legal, later working in the Sydney CBD for several small, medium and large firms, including one of the largest – returning three times over her career.
Forming Ascend Admin in September 2001, she continued to work within law firms for a further 10 years while she built her business. She worked within corporate and commercial, building and construction, and property, and then specialising in personal injury across medical negligence, dust diseases, MVA, workers’ compensation, and common law industries, to name a few.

Ascend Admin has been providing legal transcription services across Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns, Gold Coast, Darwin, Perth, Tasmania and their metros since 2001, including:
