I make key contributions to the standards and practices of law as an associate for Foster & Company with an expertise in litigation, insurance claims, plaintiff and defence work for motor vehicle accident litigants and wills and estates.

I hold a Bachelor of Business Administration with Spanish degree from Acadia University in Nova Scotia.  This path led me to experience a year abroad at the Universidad de La Rioja in Logrono, Spain.  After completing my undergraduate degree, I worked in various business-related positions in Germany, Australia, Chile, South-East Asia and numerous cities within Canada.

In 2014, I decided to complete my life-long dream of becoming a lawyer by attending law school at the University of Kent in Canterbury, England.  While attending law school, I was the recipient of various awards for my volunteering achievement.  I volunteered with the Kent Law Clinic’s legal advice sessions and soon became co-ordinator of the program.  I was a team leader for the Criminal Justice Project within the Kent Law Clinic and was awarded the Criminal Justice Project Prize.  Cases specifically included neighbour disputes; legal advice letters for prisoners with concerns of misconduct; drug offences; civil lawsuits containing criminal elements; and convincing the Crown to drop their case in ta traffic violation.

After graduating with a law degree, I returned to Canada and started working at Foster & Company.  I gained my experience and knowledge leading to my successful completion of the National Committee on Accreditation exams through the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. 

In 2017, I articled with Foster & Company prior to joining the firm as an associate in 2018.  In addition to building my own practice, I assist senior counsel in litigation involving contentious liability issues; catastrophic injuries; complex pecuniary damage claims.  I also have wills and estate experience. 

I am a member of the Law Society of New Brunswick and its Mandatory Continuing Professional Development Committee, the York-Sunbury Law Society, the Canadian Bar Association, and the New Brunswick Insurance Women’s Association.

In my spare time I enjoy playing touch rugby, softball, kayaking, traveling and spending time in the outdoors.
