Natasha Johnson loves her job.
Ward Keller’s newest receptionist joined the firm on a traineeship in August 2016—her first proper full-time job since finishing school.
‘My grandma owns a mining business in the NT, and when I was a teenager, she’d give me pocket money for doing little jobs in the office’, Natasha said. ‘I loved doing that, and it gave me a great understanding of the office environment.’
Natasha feels lucky to be in her role. ‘I remember people saying a receptionist role can be boring, but I love it’, she said. ‘There are so many different things to do—not just one thing—I get to learn all about what goes on in a law firm. I love that.’
Natasha was born in Katherine, and her family moved to Darwin when she was a toddler. She has a big family and says they’re very close.
