Annie was born in the Philippines and immigrated with her family to Australia when she was just a child. She completed a Bachelor of International Relations at La Trobe University in 2018 and a Graduate Diploma in Migration Law from Victoria University in 2020, subsequently passing the Capstone Exam for registered migration agents in 2021.

Prior to joining Augustine & Co. Immigration Lawyers in December 2021, Annie worked at several immigration firms around Melbourne as a migration assistant to senior immigration solicitors and registered migration agents. In her free time, Annie volunteers at a Filipino migrant organisation where she assists many new migrants establish their lives in Australia. It is through this volunteer work that Annie found her passion for migration law.
