I was born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and grew up in various small Saskatchewan farming communities. In my pre-law years, I was employed in the trucking industry, the hospitality industry and the food processing industry. I held various office clerical jobs and several levels of management within the above industries.

My primary areas of practice are Wills and Estate, Corporate Commercial and Real Estate Conveyancing.
