The skills that Stephanie developed as a criminal lawyer translate well to other areas of law, and in recent years, Stephanie has put her advocacy skills to work for clients in the areas of civil litigation and family law.  When appropriate, Stephanie believes in resolving matters collaborativly and without the costly expense of litigating in court.  When resolution is not possible however, Stephanie's courtroom skills serve well in all areas of contested litigation.

Stephanie is an active member in good standing with both the Law Societies of Alberta and Saskatchewan.  She is also a member of the Criminal Trial Lawyer's Association.

In addition to her work as a lawyer, Stephanie is actively involved in the community.  Since coming to Cold Lake in 2010, Stephanie has been involved with the Lakeland Centre for FASD, an international leader in FASD diagnostics, support and education.  Stephanie currently serves as the Chair of the Board of Directors.  

Stephanie is the mother of three young girls and is committed to  raising the profile of women in our community and awareness of the unique issues they can face.  She was one of the original committee members who helped develop the Cold Lake Woman of Influence Awards in 2012 and has been involved with the committee since then.

​Stephanie sits on the School Community Council at her daughter's school and is actively involved in various fundraising projects to benefit the school.
