"I have extensive experience with interpersonal relationships in the workplace and in the family, together with specialised training in Mediation and Dispute Resolution through the Justice Institute of British Columbia and Continuing Legal Education. I am also a Chartered Accountant and bring a strong financial background to the Mediation process."
My background

I am a Chartered Mediator, a Certified Comprehensive Family Mediator (certified by Family Mediation Canada) and a Chartered Accountant. I am on the Civil and Family Rosters of Mediators for the B.C. Mediator Roster Society. I am experienced in resolving disputes involving families (separation; divorce; pre-marriage and co-habitation agreements; family conflicts of all kinds), partnerships (partnership agreements; internal disputes; compensation issues; terminations; dissolution), schools (boards; professional staff; students; parents), estates (disputes between beneficiaries), business (disputes with boards; valuations; clients; customers; creditors; employees; valuations; contracts).

My training and experience have enabled me to develop the skills and knowledge required for the mediation of a wide variety of disputes. Perhaps my strongest attribute is my passion for mediation as an effective way of resolving disputes. It is a process which is generally successful in reaching a satisfactory agreement for all concerned and, more importantly, in maintaining reasonable relationships.

My past experience includes public practice as a Chartered Accountant with Price Waterhouse & Co, where I acquired my financial skills. As the Director of Administration for the law firm of Bull, Housser & Tupper I was directly involved with all aspects of human resource management and partnership issues. I was also the Executive Director of the not-for-profit BC International Commercial Arbitration Centre whose role is the administration of commercial mediation and arbitrations.
