Heather’s focus is on helping people create solutions that work for them in a cost-efficient way, while preserving their important relationships. She believes that families are their own experts and with some guidance, can come up with their own best resolutions.
Heather holds a B.A., Psychology with Distinction (2000) and an L.L.B. (2006). She started her career at Weir Bowen LLP, a general practice law firm that specializes in medical malpractice, personal injury, and insurance litigation. In 2009, Heather shifted her practice to the Family Law Office of Legal Aid Alberta, where she assisted clients in all areas of family law including divorce, property division, spousal support, child support, parenting/custody/access issues, Emergency Protection Orders, and child protection. She has appeared at all levels of Alberta courts and has conducted trials, hearings, special chambers, JDRs and has participated in countless out-of-court negotiations. In 2017, Heather and 4 of her friends and colleagues started Latitude Family Law LLP, where she is a partner. She continues to practice exclusively family law.
When she is not at work, there is a good chance she is outside playing with her kids, in the kitchen cooking up something delicious, or planning her next travels (Mongolia has been her favourite place, so far).
