Barrister and Solicitor
I enjoy helping clients navigate what is a complex legal system. In coming up with solutions to legal problems, I believe in an approach that employs sound judgment, empathetic understanding, and outstanding representation. The client-centred focus of Poole Lawyers supports these values and is what makes my work at PL so rewarding.
I previously worked as a Summer Student with Poole Lawyers before moving to Ontario to article with the City of Toronto’s Legal Services Division. After my call to the bar, I practiced as a Solicitor with the City before choosing to return to my hometown of Calgary. I was absolutely delighted to rejoin PL and their fantastic team.
When I am not at the office, you can find me at nearby parks with my dog Bosco or sipping beers at Calgary’s local breweries.
