What is Your Passion?
I love learning new things, I try to challenge myself both professionally and personally and I love to read, when I am not working or busy with my family you can find me reading. I have two children and I am passionate about them and watching them grow up into the people they will become and love that I have the ability to shape them and be a part of who they will become.
What is the best perk of your career?
The best part of my job is meeting all the different types of people. Clients are never the same, their situations are never the same, and although I usually meet people during an emotional and stressful time in their lives, I like being a support for them and hope that I can bring them some measure of comfort. In every office I have worked in I have found different families and although the legal community is large it still feels like a family to me and one that has many “distant cousins” that you can always reach out to.
What are your goals?
I would like to continue my learning in Family Law, I would like to learn the processes and procedures for the BC Courts to be better able to provide support for the firm in both of these locations. I would like to travel more and visit places I have never been to. I would love one day to go on Safari with my family.
