Gisella attended Kristin School in Albany before starting a bachelor of design degree at the University of NSW. During her last semester there she went on an exchange to South Korea, decided to stay for a while and fell into broadcasting - she was a news anchor at one of the three national broadcasters there. After two years or so she missed New Zealand, its people, culture, lifestyle, and coffee and returned home.
Gisella decided on yet another change and enrolled for law at Auckland University. She was admitted to the bar in June 2018 and started her legal career at an international insurance law firm in Auckland. She began work at Fee Langstone in August 2019.
"Insurance litigation is a specialist area that involves complex issues and disputes and often requires lawyers to think outside the box. I love that the facts for each matter can be very different from one another - you can insure almost everything. It is rewarding working on finding pragmatic resolutions meeting clients’ needs. Fee Langstone has an excellent reputation within the community for its impeccable legal service delivery and its depth of expertise over a diverse range of areas."
Apart from the law, Gisella has a passion for history. One of her dreams would be to be able to time travel and observe and experience the middle ages and early modern era. Could come in handy for researching cases as well!
Gisella is yet another Fee Langstone dog lover – she has a small but perfectly formed Pomeranian. She loves to cook and try new foods. Her wide-ranging interests extend to outdoor pursuits as well. She plays golf and tennis and loves to walk in the bush when she can.
