Joanne Roebuck - Office Manager
Jo has been with OSD for many years and works behind the scenes, overseeing office systems and finances. She is married to Ivan and shares his vision to help people by providing quality and affordable legal services to people in Townsville and to make a difference in the community. Jo wants every person who comes to OSD to experience excellent care, service and results.
Jo grew up in Townsville. She completed a law degree at QUT in Brisbane and then moved back to Townsville. She spent a short time practicing as a lawyer and then taught in the law school at JCU for over a decade while she completed some further study. She then renovated property for a while, and when Ivan bought the practice in 2013, she commenced in earnest, as the office manager at OSD.
Ivan and Jo have two teenage kids, Alexandra and Harrison. Alex is studying at UQ in Brisbane and is the 'unofficial' OSD 'blog writer'. Harry is busy at school, playing soccer and his guitar. Jo loves all things family whether that be slobbing on the couch watching a movie together, a nice dinner, beach holidays, travelling, or listening to Alex and Harry sing and play their guitars. She also loves reading, dinners with friends, rearranging furniture and walking or slow-jogging along the Ross River.
