After 15 years of successful private practice, in the spring of 2014 I made a significant career change in leaving my partnership and moving to government, where I now practice general litigation with the NS Department of Justice in Halifax. I now have experience practicing law in both the private and public sectors, and the challenges that face both as the legal profession continues to evolve and change. I initially became involved with peer volunteering in 1998 on behalf of the Law Students’ Society at Dalhousie. I remained involved as I moved into practice, as I strongly believe in the goals and support available through LAP programs. Having suffered earlier in my career with issues involving depression and anxiety, and being an advocate for GLBT rights across society, I want to ensure peer support is available for those who may find it valuable, particularly in the GLBT community.
