Civil Roster Mediator Details

I specialize in working with high conflict situations, respectful interactions and reaching collaborative resolutions. I have considerable experience working within the legal system and within government. I am open to and aware of intercultural competence and experienced in working across cultures. I am a member of the BC Civil Roster, Mediate Yukon Society and currently in Arbitration training with ADR Institute of BC.

Special Skills: I enjoy delivering workshops on topics such as: Creating a Respectful Workplace, Communication Toolkits, Resolving Conflict and Shifting the Culture of Conflict. Custom presentations are also available.
Currently maintain a private practice and am willing to travel.

Will apply various forms of dispute resolution including: mediation, facilitation, coaching, corporate circles, workshops and workplace assessments depending on what may be the most effective response.

Previously worked as a Conflict Management Practitioner to address workplace conflict under a government Respectful Workplace. This was a successful venture on building capacity within government on maintaining a respectful, healthy and well-functioning workplaces.

After completion of a mediation practicum training with the Provincial Court Registry, Court Mediation Practicum, I went on to work in Small Claims Court for six years. This experience provided exposure to many varied topics and settlements under 25k. This framework involved moving people from deep conflict to resolution within 2 hours, writing legally binding agreements and was measured by high client satisfaction and settlement rates.

Courses in Conflict Resolution Skills from the Justice Institute of British Columbia and a Bachelor Studies from Royal Roads University have provided me with advanced communication skills and essential knowledge of handling conflict.
