“We treat our clients like people, not file numbers. That approach is one of the things that makes our firm so unique. I am proud to be part of a team of professionals who are highly competent, but also kind, compassionate and devoted to taking care of our clients. It inspires me to do my best.”
Navigating the legal system can be confusing and overwhelming. As a person injured through the fault of another person, it is so important to find a firm where your needs are put first. This is paramount in everything that we do here at Brain & Injury Law.
As an Associate I’m involved with all aspects of litigation – from the initial client meeting, to negotiating settlements, or proceeding with a claim to trial. In representing individuals with serious injuries, I advocate for those who can’t do the same for themselves. I help clients find perspective and feel better about their litigation, or newfound challenges they’ve encountered post-injury. I’m inspired by our clients and always impressed by their determination and resilience. My work is incredibly fulfilling.
Before embarking upon my career as a lawyer, I completed my undergraduate studies at McGill University, and obtained a Master’s degree in Industrial Relations from Queen’s University.
After working in labour relations and human resources for a number of years, I realized that what I could accomplish with a law degree was more valuable to me and would enable me to make more of a difference in the lives of others. I completed my law degree at the University of Victoria and had the privilege of articling at a well-respected insurance defence firm in Vancouver. Shortly after completing my articles, I joined the Brain & Injury Law team.
Hailing from Edmonton, I’ve called Vancouver home since I was 12 years old. When I’m not advocating for injured clients, you will find me hiking, biking, walking or riding around the seawall, spending time with friends and family, or at a spin class.
