Raised in Ontario, I moved to Victoria 19 years ago. The coast is now my home and I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends in this beautiful little part of the world.
I have worked in the non-profit sector for over 25 years. I have had the privilege of being invited to the table in family homes, community organizations, indigenous communities, schools and government offices. When families and professionals are looking for someone to bring a high level of empathy, understanding, problem solving and conflict resolution they call me. It is not a privilege I take lightly and I am humbled by what I continue to learn from others.
It is this experience of working with diverse individuals and groups that I bring with me to mediation. I use an interest-based model for mediation that focuses on moving forward from the present to get to an agreed upon, sustainable outcome.
