I was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I attended the University of Ottawa and studied social sciences for two years before completing a Civil Law degree, in French. I then came to Victoria and completed my Juris Doctor at UVic.

After graduation, I articled with Legal Aid in northern Manitoba, and was a Crown Prosecutor in Edmonton and northern Saskatchewan. In these positions, I litigated complex files and learned to see the big picture while considering all of the details.

At Sitka, my practice is focused on wills and estate planning, real estate, and corporate law. I enjoy learning about my clients’ stories and goals so that I’m able to empower them to make legal decisions that best suit their needs and futures.

Outside of the office, I enjoy crafting, hiking with my partner and our pets, and sampling craft beers.
