I had a dream of becoming a lawyer at a very early age. Having been raised in a family-run lobster fishing business, I did run the fishing vessel and business for a number of years before returning to university and obtaining a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Dalhousie University. I graduated in 1998 with First Class Honours (Accounting).
I subsequently graduated from Dalhousie University Law School in 2001 and passed the bar the following year. My solo practice opened in 2002 and has thrived due to my hard work and practical client-centered approach. I am a proud member of the community and support several organizations, including the Canadian Association for Community Living (Clare), the Nova Scotia Legal Aid Commission and various community initiatives.
