I grew up in Prince Edward Island and obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree with a Major in English Literature from the University of Prince Edward Island in 1989. I then attended Queen's University where I obtained my LL.B. in 1994 and was called to the Bar in Ontario in 1996.
In 1993, while at Queen's University, I was awarded the Reuben Wells Leonard Prize in Family Law for having the highest grade in the Family Law course that year.
I have practiced exclusively in the area of Family Law for more than 20 years. From May 1996 to July 2003 I was employed as an associate at a Family Law firm in London, Ontario. I completed my Collaborative Law training while practicing in London. In August 2003 I relocated to Durham Region and opened my own firm in Oshawa, Ontario where I continue to practice Family Law as a sole practitioner. I have been a member of the Office of the Children's Lawyer legal panel since April 2004.In December 2010 I was appointed as a Dispute Resolution Officer in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, Family Court in Oshawa. I live in Whitby, Ontario. When outside the office I enjoy traveling, reading and walking my 2 dogs.

I am a 1989 graduate of the Durham College Legal Administration Program. I reside in Oshawa, which I have done for most of my life, with my husband and two children. Upon graduating from Durham College I began working with a law firm in Oshawa and spent most of my career working at that firm. I joined Christine Ready as her legal assistant in October 2015. I thoroughly enjoy my job and look forward to assisting you when you call the office.
