I am a member of the family law, wills and estates and estate litigation service groups at Mann Lawyers. I am an enthusiastic and compassionate advocate for my clients. My experience in family law includes advising clients on property division, support issues, custody and access matters, domestic contracts and private adoptions. I assist clients with preparing wills, estate planning and administration matters, and disputes over estates, including issues related to capacity and dependent’s relief.

My approach to dispute resolution is based on the needs of each client and their own particular circumstances. I am trained in Collaborative Practice and am a member of Collaborative Practice Ottawa. I seek to empower clients to resolve issues in the manner that best suits their interests.

I graduated from the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University in 2008. I articled with a national firm in Calgary and was called to the Alberta Bar and Ontario Bar in 2009. I sit on the Board of Directors of Family Services Ottawa.  I am a former member of the Family Law Section Executive and Young Lawyers East Section of the Ontario Bar Association.

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, including my daughters and husband, and trying to keep up with yoga practice as much as I can.

I bring a straightforward and creative approach to my practice. If you require assistance with a family law or estate matter, please give me a call or email me.
