"Your career is your livelihood. I am always aware of that when providing you with your advice and advocating for your position.
I have developed an employment law and human rights law practice based on providing practical and compassionate advice to my clients. I have assisted clients at every stage of their employment relationship, from contract negotiation up to the termination of their employment. I also have experience in analyzing and arguing the unenforceability of restrictive covenants, and assisting clients who are navigating workplace disputes such as workplace harassment.
I have experience before the Supreme Court of British Columbia, the BC Human Rights Tribunal, and the BC Labour Relations Board. I also have experience in arbitrations under the federal Canada Labour Code and the BC Labour Relations Code.
I grew up in North Vancouver and completed my undergraduate and law school degrees at the University of British Columbia (now the Peter A. Allard School of Law). During law school I worked extensively with the UBC Law Review, serving as Editor-in-Chief (Administrative) in my final year. I articled with a boutique employment law firm in Vancouver and practiced there for 3 years before joining HHBG.
I am a member of the Canadian Bar Association and serve on the executive of the Employment Law Section for the BC Branch. In my spare time, I enjoy lengthy discussions about the current state of Vancouver Canucks hockey, as well as cooking and occasionally dabbling in ultimate frisbee.
