Child Protection Roster Mediation Details
I have been an Indian Residential School Independent Assessment Process Adjudicator since November, 2007. Through this work, I continually encounter First Nations cultures.


I have been mediating child protection matters since 2003. I find this work challenging and satisfying. Since 2006, I have been a child protection mediation mentor, which is also interesting and gratifying work. In terms of my work history, I have been a lawyer since 1986. My initial mediation training was in 1991 and since then, I have participated in hundreds of hours of mediation-related training. Since 2000, my practice has been focused on mediation, alternate dispute resolution and collaborative family law. I was a Board Member of the BC Mediator Roster Society (now called Mediate BC) from 2004 to 2009. Previously, I was the co-chair of the Alternate Dispute Resolution Okanagan Subsection of the Canadian Bar Association from 2000 until 2003.
