Meet Maggie Pinder

maggie-pinderMaggie joined the Schultz Toomey O’Brien team in late 2014. Here’s a little about Maggie.

Position: Legal Secretary

What do you enjoy about working here? I appreciate how everyone pulls together to achieve the best outcome for our clients.  I enjoy the friendly and supportive atmosphere too.  And the coffee’s good.

How do you spend your time outside of work? Getting out into the open and exploring southeast Queensland.  I enjoy camping, four wheel driving and bush walking. I’m obsessed with tennis.  On the home front, I make my own bread and cheese and various preserves (with varying success).  I also like words and how they fall on the page, so I read a lot, write a bit, and edit other people’s stories.

What is your favourite type of music? Anything except hip hop.  Anything with bagpipes in it (Acca Dacca win in that respect). Anything with beautiful lyrics (Leonard Cohen is the man of choice there). Anything annoyingly upbeat and catchy. I spent six years in Ireland, so I love traditional Irish music.
