Life before Sparkes

Before joining Sparke Helmore, Rushil held in-house legal roles for Commonwealth agencies, including the Department of Education, Skills and Employment, and the former Department of Human Services. This experience has given her a unique understanding of the broader political, policy, strategic and whole-of-department concerns and objectives affecting Commonwealth Government agencies.  

Life outside of Sparkes

Outside of Sparke Helmore, Rushil is always looking for new plant specimens to add to her growing urban jungle. She also uses her hobby of nature and landscape photography as an excuse to travel, where she mostly takes in the gastronomical delights of the places she visits.
