When you retain me as you lawyer, your problems now become my problems and you do not have to lose any more sleep over it. Before becoming a lawyer, I worked as a counsellor for a number of years. During law school, I sat on multiple boards while being a Research Assistant and an intern on Parliament Hill. I am used to a fast paced and highly stressful work environment. I will work hard to find you the best possible outcome for your situation.
Here at Foster & Company, I specialize in insurance law, personal injury law and professional liability law. I help my clients recover sums of money, and defend themselves against legal actions. I act on behalf of patients in medical malpractice, nursing home or hospital negligence lawsuits. I represent both individual and institutional clients in personal injury claims and other insurance related matters. I also do some estate planning and family law, with a special interest in bioethics, specifically assisted reproduction and end of life questions.
I earned a Bachelor of Social Sciences with a major in Criminology and minor in Sociology as well as a Licence of Civil Law from the University of Ottawa. I was awarded multiple scholarships and prizes. After spending close to a decade in Ottawa, I obtained my Juris Doctor degree from the Université de Moncton and was later called to the New Brunswick Bar.
I am a member of the New Brunswick Insurance Women Association (NBIWA), the Nova Scotia Insurance Women Association (NSIWA) and the Canadian Association for Insurance Women (CAIW) and the York-Sunbury Law Society. You can find my monthly legal column in the Info-Lien Journal. I am also the President of the CAFI Board and the Secretary for the Constitutional Human Rights and Equity Section of the Canadian Bar Association, New Brunswick Branch.
I am originally from the Acadian Peninsula. In my free time I enjoy cooking, gardening and playing with my french bulldog. I also practice yoga. As a citizen of the world, I love to travel and discover other cultures.
