Q.C., Partner


Having worked in youth counselling and family conflict, I appreciate how family matters must be handled. I want my clients to know that they have a partner in me, and in my team, and that we’re here to resolve their issues effectively and efficiently. 

With more than 20 years’ of my career I have focused exclusively in family law, I have earned a reputation in New Brunswick as an accomplished and sought-after lawyer. I routinely speak at provincial and national family law conferences and I’ve worked on many committees related to Access to Justice in family law.

When a client chooses TANDEM, they benefit from my expertise and can take comfort in knowing that we are all working together to minimize the emotional and financial impact of their specific case.

My work is my passion, but when I’m not at the office, I like to explore the world around me – I love to travel. I’m also a competitive cyclist and triathlete.
