“I am a business and estate planning lawyer who assists local business owners and families as they prepare for future growth, a possible transition, or unfortunate circumstances.

I have acted for a wide variety of different businesses, big and small, from multi-million dollar enterprises to small single owner retail stores. Each of these business owners has distinct needs for structure and planning, and I can readily assist with any of establishing and maintaining a company, corporate restructuring, wills and estate planning, probate, registering trademarks in Canada and the USA, and many others.”

Community Involvement, Hobbies, and Personal Interests

I grew up in Edmonton and obtained my Bachelor of Laws at the University of Alberta. I later moved west and practiced in the Okanagan for several years before joining BTM Lawyers LLP as an associate in 2013. I live in the Tri-Cities and am actively involved in the community.

In my spare time I enjoy photography, golf, camping, and travel.
