Libby’s career within the legal profession started more than 25 years ago with a family law firm where she enjoyed a range of work including various aspects of conveyancing and business transactions, also acting as the firm's Immigration Consultant during a year based in Oxford, UK.
More recently Libby spent eight years as a Mortgage Broker, first in business with Law Lend NZ Ltd, contracting out to six major law firms in Dunedin, and then as a Director, owner and the Manager of the Otago/Southland Franchise of Mike Pero Mortgages. During that time, Libby was a member of the NZ Mortgage Brokers Association and was voted one of the top 5 Brokers in the South Island.
In 2006 Libby came to McMillan&Co. in a legal executive role encompassing all aspects of conveyancing, property transactions, lending, relationship property, family trusts and estates, allowing her to apply a professional lifetime of specialist experience to helping people achieve their property goals. More recently Libby’s role in the firm has evolved to have an administrative focus with responsibility for client liaison and credit control, allowing her to draw on a professional lifetime of experience in different areas of work where her skills as a “people-person” have been to the fore. Libby enjoys working in a friendly, family-firm environment where clients feel welcome, supported and reassured.
Outside of work Libby and husband and their 3 adult daughters enjoy a variety of pursuits including skiing, yachting, tennis and Ceroc dancing. She is a member of the Otago Yacht Club, an Art Group, and the Columba Old Girls Association.
