I was born and raised in central Alberta, growing up on the farm with 4 siblings and many pets. After graduating from Bentley High School, I left home and entered the working world, until, finding myself a single mother with two small children to support, I registered for and was accepted into the Arts program at the University of Alberta and after two years of undergraduate study, I applied for and was accepted into the Faculty of Law.
As a lawyer with now over 30 years experience in the area of family law and, as well, drawing on my own personal life experience, I want to assist families going through separation and divorce with the least stress possible – both financially and emotionally. When relationship breakdown is inevitable, with support and guidance almost everyone can resolve matters outside the court process, and create a go forward plan for division of property, parenting of children and support that will fit the unique circumstances of their family. As a founding member of the Collaborative Association of Professionals (Edmonton) since its formation 15 years ago, I continue to broaden the scope of my knowledge and expertise in dispute resolution through training, seminars and of course hands on experience with the many families I have worked with over the course of my practice.
I welcome the opportunity to provide information on family law and dispute resolution processes.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my kids, grandkids and all my family (my definition of family is inclusive – ask me about it sometime!); riding my bike as often as possible including to the office; and planning the next travel adventure.
