Biographical Info

Michelle graduated from the University of Alberta law school and was admitted to the Alberta Bar in 2005. Michelle has practiced family law since 2005 and has extensive experience in Court and in Collaborative Family Law. Michelle is in the process of extending her practice to include mediations and arbitrations so that she can provide more options to people who wish to resolve disputes without Court.

Michelle is grateful and considers it a privilege to be able to assist families during what is often a difficult and transitional time in their lives. Separation and divorce can be a very stressful time which can leave individuals with the sense of a loss of control. Michelle believes that the Collaborative Family Law Process provides a great resource to empower clients to construct their own settlements in a transparent and respectful manner. Through her experience, Michelle has seen how the Collaborative Family Law Process has assisted in reducing the negative consequences caused by divorce and separation especially as it relates to children; this makes her an advocate for the process where appropriate.

Along with being a member of the Canadian Bar Association, Michelle is a founding member of the Canadian Volunteers for International Development Society (CVIDS) a charitable organization dedicated to providing medical and humanitarian aid in underdeveloped countries.
