Workplace disputes can be stressful. I help you to understand your rights and options when those disputes occur, and I can help you use legal tools to resolve them.
My practice is in employment, labour, and administrative law. I have assisted a variety of clients throughout the course of their employment relationships, including contract negotiation, workplace disputes, discipline and dismissal. When providing advice to my clients my aim is to make it realistic, practical and centred on my clients’ needs and goals.
After completing an undergraduate degree in chemistry with high honours at the University of Saskatchewan, I graduated with honours from the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Law in 2014. While studying there, I received several awards and enjoyed participating in an intensive clinical law program at CLASSIC (Community Legal Assistance Services for Saskatoon Inner City Inc.).
After graduating, I completed my articles and worked for the next several years at a Saskatchewan law firm that focused primarily on employment law, union-side labour and First Nations law. I was also on the Executive of the Saskatchewan North CBA Labour and Administrative Law section. These experiences have provided me with practical experience on advising clients on a variety of employment relationship issues, in both union and non-union workplaces. I moved to BC and joined HHBG in 2019 where I am excited to continue my employee centred practice with a focus on employment justice.
Outside of law, I enjoy visiting friends and family, planning tightly scheduled holiday trips that involve long walks or cross-country skiing, and baking the best peanut butter chocolate chip cookies I can.
