Graduated as a ‘Teaching Pedagogy’ from the University of Malta and gave her services within the Ministry of Education.  In the meantime she also graduated in a Diploma course ‘Business Management and Human Resources’ which enabled her to apply and get the role of a Manager within the Animal welfare Directorate, Ministry of Resources and Rural Affairs.  This career change involved regular hours in court, which was a crucial part of her working life since her office was in charge of handling and reporting possible or actual animal abuse.  This made her realize the alluring importance of law and its enforcement, thus once again she enrolled herself at the University of Malta, and later graduated in Law with a Degree LL.B., (Hons.) in 2016 and then in a subsequent Master of Advocacy M.Adv.(Melit.) in 2017. She was granted the warrant to practice as an Advocate in February, 2018. She did her practice within the Legal Firm, ‘Farrugia, Gatt and Falzon’.
