I graduated from Trent University with a Bachelor of Arts Joint Major in Psychology and Sociology. I also hold a diploma in Police Foundations and Legal Administration from Sir Sanford Fleming College and recently followed my passion for health and wellness by obtaining my registration as a Holistic Nutritionist from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition.
Early in my career, I was employed by the firm as a Criminal Law Clerk, Bookkeeper and Administrative Assistant. I took a break in my career to raise my two children. Once I returned to the work-force, I led a 20-year career in Justice where I was able to develop extensive experience in the courts and with court proceedings, as a client liaison and a conflict resolution specialist. I approach clients with a calm, warm and compassionate demeanor. My passion for helping people gives clients the confidence they need to get them through what may be one of the most uncomfortable and difficult situations they will experience.
I have lived in the City of Kawartha Lakes for most of my life. I have always enjoyed spending time with my family, exploring new cities, gaining new experiences, cooking, being outdoors and all things related to keeping healthy and happy. I also run a health and wellness business providing nutrition counselling, workshops and yoga and meditation classes and retreats.
I love working at the firm because of the level of professionalism and care that the firm offers its clients. The experience, knowledge, compassion, and quality of legal services that are offered to our clients here at Russell Alexander Collaborative Family Lawyers is unparalleled.
