I obtained my Associate’s Degree from the University College of the Cariboo (now known, of course, as Thompson Rivers University), followed by a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in English from Trinity Western University, and my law degree from the University of Manitoba.
I grew up in Williams Lake and went back there to article with Vanderburgh & Company. I was called to the Bar in May of 2008. I practised law in Williams Lake until May 2011, when I moved to Cranbrook and practised law there until January of 2016.
I opened my own firm here in Kamloops in February 2016 in order to be closer to family. My husband Chris and I have three children.
I am a sole practioner, with a focus on collaborative family law, child reports, and mediation. A majority of my career was in family litigation and as a parent’s counsel in Ministry of Children and Families matters.
I love helping people with buying/selling their houses, working with people on wills and estates and corporate matters. We provide a personal touch, answering our phones throughout the lunch hour, offering evening and weekend appointments to fit people’s busy schedules, and can help assist with last-minute matters.
Outside of the office, I am part of the executive for the Harper Mountain Ski Club and also serve with the provincial government’s Mental Health Review Board as chair of its hearing panels.
I love being in the community of Kamloops!
