Member of St Matthew's Lutheran Church, Spruce Grove AB
I have been a member of the ELCIC since its beginning, and before that, I grew up in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in Alberta. I have been a member of an LCA congregation in Edmonton and then the ELCC.; My education is that I have a BA in French from the University of Alberta, a BEd in elementary education from the University of Saskatchewan and an LLB from the University of Alberta. I am a partner in a law practice in Stony Plain, AB just next door to Spruce Grove, where I have lived with my family for the past 20 years. I have been practicing law since 1996 when I was called to the bar. It is a general practice, but I do almost all of the family law for the firm. I have training as a mediator and I am now training to be a collaborative family law lawyer. Prior to my law career, I taught elementary school and then worked for Air Canada as a bilingual customer sales and service agent in Edmonton.
