I have practiced family law since 2001. Following my initial collaborative training in 2003, my practice has evolved and is now focused on collaborative family law. I am a strong supporter of the collaborative team process and adapting the process as necessary to best address the unique needs of each family. I have a pragmatic approach to problem solving.
I find the collaborative process offers the best option to many separating couples to resolve their legal issues in a peaceful and holistic manner, providing an opportunity to recognize and address the emotional aspects of a separation and enabling each individual to move forward in a healthy way. Respectful and clear communication is a critical part of this process, and I endeavor to model this behavior.
I have lived in Uxbridge most of my life. I am a past member of the Uxbridge Library Board and a past member of the Collaborative Practice Durham Region board. I have been a dedicated member of the Rotary Club of Uxbridge since 2008, focusing on international service, and serving as club president from 2015-2016. In my spare time I enjoy reading and gardening.
