Assistant: Crystal Ducharme | [email protected]

I graduated from Western Michigan University Cooley Law School in 2011 with a Juris Doctor and from Western New England School of Law, in Springfield, Massachusetts, with a Master of Laws in Closely Held Businesses in 2014. I completed the National Committee on Accreditation exam process in 2015 and was called to the bar in Alberta in June 2017.

My focus is being a well-rounded general practice lawyer working in all areas of law, except for criminal, and using my knowledge to provide a full-service experience.

I was recently elected as Case Review and Legislation Officer (2018 through 2020) for the Canadian Bar Association (CBA) Immigration section for North Alberta. I am active in the local community and volunteer with the Edmonton Community Legal Centre (ECLC) in their evening clinics on a variety of legal issues. The ECLC provides free legal information and advice to low to moderate income people in the Edmonton area. In addition, I am also a Member at Large for the Canadian Bar Association (CBA) Young Lawyers Section.

I am of Jamaican descent and travel there often. In my free time I enjoy watching movies, volunteering, and solo travelling around the world.
