As a career adjudicator in commercial and civil litigation, I have been assisting individuals and organizations manage conflict for over thirty years. My dedication to the art and science of dispute resolution has spanned my entire working life. As president of a busy dispute resolution practice, I hold dual national designations as Chartered Mediator and Chartered Arbitrator granted by the ADR Institute of Canada, and have been a member in good standing of the B.C. Civil Roster of Mediators since 2011.
My experience at the mediation table includes practicum work in the Vancouver and Surrey Small Claims Courts and appointment as senior case manager to the B.C. Civil Resolution Tribunal. Other standing appointments include mediation rosters for WorkSafeBC and the Mutual Insurance Companies Ombudservice (MICO). In private practice, I am frequently appointed by legal counsel to mediate personal injury matters involving complex, high-risk and sensitive issues, and vulnerable individuals. My technical specialties include high risk and high complexity personal injury cases, commercial and residential strata property disputes, 2/5/10 new home construction warranty issues, and public and private sector workplace matters.
As an arbitrator, my current standing appointments include work in bylaw and taxation adjudication for local governments, along with conducting arbitration hearings under public and private auto insurance policies and the Canadian Motor Vehicle Arbitration Plan (“CAMVAP”). I am a qualified supplier of arbitration services to the Residential Tenancy Branch (Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing).
My additional education and designation as a Certified Risk Manager (CRM) allows me to maintain a focus on the critical risk-assessment phase of any dispute resolution process. I am pleased to offer a full menu of dispute resolution services, which can easily be customized to suit the needs of all parties.
