Tanya Phillips - Profile

Tanya began her legal career in her home town of Naracoorte at age 17. In that role, she had excellent training in various aspects of the law together with the workings of a busy country practice. 

Tanya then moved to Adelaide when she was 25 and started working at a mid-tier firm, eventually working her way up to becoming a PA/legal secretary for two “amazing” partners in a large modern and progressive law firm.

Over the years, Tanya has enjoyed working in both small and large practices and has relished the opportunities and challenges that have presented themselves in a variety of firms.

It was during her time in Adelaide that she attained her Certificate IV in Business.

When Tanya’s husband, Nigel, was offered a position in Kadina, they felt it was a good time to return to the country life.

Tanya came to the Yorke Peninsula in 2013, happily settling in Kadina.

After spending some time away from the legal industry and establishing her community connections again, Tanya saw a position advertised at Mildwaters Lawyers and felt it was a great opportunity to re-enter into the field that she had always enjoyed, loved, and been challenged by. 

Tanya began as a Law Clerk at Mildwaters Lawyers in February 2021. She says it has been great to be back in a busy, vibrant, and progressive country law firm with a great group of people to work with.

Outside of work, Tanya is generally at the gym working on her powerlifting, enjoying a coffee, and spending time at home.  She enjoys heading to the city or the Barossa for a weekend away and returning to the Yorke Peninsula for the relaxed lifestyle.
