Bettina was born and raised on the Gold Coast. In her spare time she enjoys going on picnics and venturing to new cafes where she can drink her chai lattes.
She began her passion for the criminal justice system when she began working for Prisoners’ Legal Service. It was here she was able to gain insight as to the ins and outs of jails in Queensland. She regularly helped people with their parole applications and assisted families in understanding what was happening to their loved one while in custody.
In 2014 Bettina began working for Howden Saggers Lawyers where she gained an appreciation for the court processes. She now attends court on a daily basis and uses her knowledge and experience in working with those caught up in the criminal justice system to get the best results possible.
