I have dedicated my career to representing individuals facing formidable adversaries, much like the timeless story of David taking on Goliath. Specifically, I have focused on safeguarding property rights in the context of major energy developments and advocating for civil liberties in legal challenges against the government. A significant highlight of my civil liberties advocacy was the rare opportunity to cross-examine the Prime Minister of Canada during a live broadcast that garnered global attention.
These demanding legal environments are characterized by their highly technical and intricate nature, often unfolding within tight timeframes. I have not only thrived but excelled in these challenging settings, consistently demonstrating my ability for skillful mitigation and adept management.
My academic qualifications include a Bachelor of Science, a Law Degree, and a Master of Laws in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). This unique educational background has equipped me with a creative and holistic approach to client representation and dispute resolution. My professional experiences have further honed my distinctive approach to the practice of law, emphasizing problem-solving, collaborative efforts, and innovative thinking.
In 2010, my personal life took an unexpected turn when I received a diagnosis of an extremely rare form of pancreatic cancer, necessitating life-saving surgery. This diagnosis and its subsequent consequences prompted a profound reevaluation of my life goals. In 2012, I decided to take a hiatus from the legal profession and embarked on a global journey focused on personal wellness and self-discovery. This journey led me to establish two health and wellness businesses. More recently, I founded Empowered Canadians, an organization with the goal of informing Canadians about their legal and political processes, and enabling them to become more active citizens in our democracy.
Collectively, these experiences, which encompass my professional achievements, educational pursuits, and personal trials, have deeply influenced my dedication to justice and my belief in the pivotal role of education. Specifically, they have reinforced my unwavering commitment to advocating for the rights of individuals who may be more vulnerable within society and enabling others to actively contribute to positive change.
"If we are to keep our democracy, there must be one commandment; 'Thou shalt not ration justice.'"
