I practice exclusively in the areas of wills and trusts, incapacity planning, and estate administration. With every matter, I take the time to understand my clients’ wishes and needs and guide them through the estate planning process. I carefully explain complex options to clients and find solutions that preserve wealth and family harmony.

In my estate administration practice, I assist individual and institutional executors with probating wills, administering estates, and preparing estate accounts.  I also regularly advise executors, trustees, and attorneys of their fiduciary duties.

Born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, I hold an honours degree in Business from McMaster University (summa cum laude) and a law degree from the University of Ottawa (cum laude). I was called to the Ontario bar in 2018.  Before joining Mann Lawyers in June 2020, I practiced in wills and estates with a mid-sized Ottawa firm.

I currently sit on the Board of Directors of Villa Marconi Long-Term Care Centre in Ottawa and am a member of the Ottawa Estate Planning Council.

As a client-focused advocate, I tackle every matter with empathy, responsiveness, and a strong attention to detail. If you need help with your estate plan or have an estate related issue, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or by email.
