Sally Doherty

Sally grew up on a farm near Winton, Southland and lived there until her parents retired to Lake Hayes when she was 18.   Sally attended Otago University and obtained a Diploma in Physical Education, which has been used in the area of coaching many different sports and teams, managing sports teams and training teams.

Sally started in the legal fraternity as a receptionist at the busiest law firm in Queenstown and worked her way up to being a Legal Executive in the firm, completing her studies by way of correspondence, working for and with a Senior Partner of the firm.  She worked for this firm for 19 years covering many different facets of the law.  A move to Christchurch with her husband and daughter happened 11 years ago.

Since living in Christchurch, Sally has worked for 2 different law firms, both providing many and varied learning environments and experiences.

Areas of Practice:

Sallys main area of practice is residential conveyancing and she works closely with Stephen Kannangara, a Senior Partner of the firm in the area of conveyancing.

Interests:

Outside of work, her main interests are fitness, having dabbled in many sports from triathalons, skiing, swimming, cycling, Masters Netball, CrossFit and currently F45 when not supporting  her daughter in her sporting and dancing commitments.

Sally has been married to the same henpecked husband for 33 years … that in itself deserves an accolade!
