Prior to coming to Kingston, I was born and raised in the small community of Read which is just outside of Belleville. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Western Ontario because I wanted to know what life was like in the “big city”. I quickly discovered living so far away from home was not for me. I then took the first opportunity to return closer to home, which led me to law school at Queen’s University. Although I came to Kingston for the purpose of school, Kingston quickly became my home. I continue to reside here with my husband and three children (the oldest of whom was born while I was in law school).
Throughout my career there has been only one area of practice for me and that is family law. Whether it is negotiating a matter to resolution or litigating in Court, I aim to provide my clients with quality and trustworthy service. I completely understand the daunting task of navigating the various issues to consider when there has been a breakdown of a family unit.
When I am not practicing law, I am active with Girl Guides of Canada (where I have been a member since I was a Brownie myself), the Transplant Advocates Association (which is an organization promoting organ donation awareness and transplant support), and I am heavily involved in my children’s activities. On the rare occasion I find time for myself I enjoy reading, playing trivia, and travelling.
