I have been in private practice since 2009. I have been happily married for many years, raised two stepchildren and two biological children, raised several puppies – three for Dog Guides of Canada – and have co-owned and run a thriving court reporting business with my husband. These experiences add to my training and lead to greater understanding, compassion and patience.
