I was called to the Bar in Alberta in 1975, after graduating with a B.A. from the University of Calgary, and a LL.B. from the University of Alberta.  I was also admitted to the Saskatchewan Bar in 1989.  In 2000, I was honoured to be appointed as Queen's Counsel.

In my spare time, I love to travel, spend time with my family, spoil my grandchildren, and pursue an active lifestyle.  I have a passion for cross country skiing, golfing, kayaking, photography, and trying to keep the little white ball on the fairway.
