I have acquired knowledge and skills that help me provide valuable advice and I have continually upgraded my skills and knowledge through further legal education. I obtained a Masters of Law degree from York University Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto specializing in Alternative Dispute Resolution. I am also a Provincial Court Mediator and Child Support Resolution Officer and sessional lecturer at the U of A Law School teaching mediation advocacy. This education and these positions have helped me assess litigation and negotiation strategies and to advise my clients more effectively.
