Rachael Jhinku joined us in September 2018 as a senior associate at our North Shore office. Rachael is not altogether new to Gaze Burt – her first job after graduating from Waikato University was working with David Burt at Gaze Burt’s Grange Road office, and later in the city office, firstly in the Reserve Bank building and then moving to One Nelson. After 5 years at Gaze Burt, she moved on to other positions, firstly closer to home in West Auckland and then back to the city in the banking and finance team of a top tier firm and then to a boutique property firm working primarily for property developers.
Rachael then took time out from the law to raise her two boys. Once they had both started school she got back into the legal industry, working in various part time roles for firms on the North Shore.
Rachael is excited to be back at Gaze Burt after all these years – “it is fantastic that there are so many familiar faces. I am working in an area of the law that I really enjoy, specialising in family trusts, wills, asset planning and property”.
Outside of work, Rachael enjoys spending time with her husband and two teenage boys and running the family dog, her beautiful golden retriever, Holly. If she has any spare time you might find her in a quiet spot in the garden reading a good book. She loves contributing to her local community in Greenhithe, and helping to run the children’s ministry at the local church.
