Since 2004 my career has been focused on family law, civil litigation and collaborative law.
It’s important that I get to the bottom of the issues for my clients, to help them feel heard and understood, so I believe in the art of negotiation – I see it as my greatest strength. Family law is complex, every issue and every client is different, so navigating this world means being able to work with different personalities in order to come to a resolution as quickly and smoothly as possible.
In my profession, I am always willing to give back which is why I chair the midwinter sessions in family law through the Canadian Bar Association (New Brunswick Branch). I am also the vice-chair of the Family Law Section of the Canadian Bar Association (New Brunswick Branch).
In the community, I serve as a judge on the Université de Moncton law school’s Moot Court and have also supervised a group of students who presented on family law issues to the YWCA.
Outside of work, I enjoy traveling with my husband and our son.
