Mediate BC Blog

Meet Lori

Posted by mbcstaff

I am very excited and honoured to be joining Mediate BC as the Child Protection Initiatives Lead. 

I am grateful to be able to be able to do this work from the unceded and traditional territory of the Malahat Nation and the W̱SÁNEĆ People which includes the Tsartlip, Tsawout, and Tseycum Nations. 

I have had the honour of being invited to the table in businesses, community organizations, non-profits, Indigenous communities, schools, and government offices to facilitate collaborative processes. I believe we all have strengths, knowledge, and experience to share and contribute and I am always humbled by what I continue to learn from others.

Inclusion is a core value I hold. It is important to me to find ways of designing and adapting processes and ways of interacting with systems that work for everyone.  

I have been a member of the Child Protection Roster for several years. I also work in the areas of workplace mediation and conflict management consulting for organizations. I did my mediation training with the Justice Institute of BC. Previous to that I completed a degree in Sociology at McMaster University. I am a life-long learner and continue to seek out new skills and knowledge for both personal growth and to better serve those I work with. 

I am originally from Ontario but have called Vancouver Island my home now for over 20 years. I love spending time with my family, friends, and faithful dog Ginger, in this beautiful part of the world.
