how we can help protect your brand.
I landed my first job in the intellectual property group of a major national law firm in 2001. Despite having an undergraduate degree in science, from day one, I was drawn to trademark law. Why? Because trademarks are imaginative and dynamic, and so are the people who create them.
But the legal services offered in the big firm environment don’t allow for personal connections and tailored advice. At least not without a shockingly large bill at the end.
While I love all areas of trademark law and protection, I have particular fondness for clearing trademarks for use and registration,
prosecuting trademark applications (especially the difficult to register trademarks) and advising on trademark opposition and cancellation matters. I also frequently assist with creating commercial agreements related to the ownership and use of trademarks.
I am proud to claim a strong track record of success in assisting clients with
quickly stopping the unauthorised use of their trademarks.
I thrive in a fast-paced and challenging work environment and can organize and prioritize competing workloads in a busy environment, with ease.
Outside of work, I am very active in the sport of ringette. I am passionate about playing and coaching ringette. When I am not at the arena, I enjoy exercising and spending time with friends and family, including my 2 adorable pups.
