Since moving to Nova Scotia, I have continued both my legal and mental health work.  While requalifying as a lawyer in Canada I worked at Nova Scotia Legal Aid in the Youth and Duty Counsel Office.  Between March 2013 and June 2015 I worked as a solicitor and barrister with Weldon McInnis in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

I had a general practice comprising criminal law, family law, civil litigation and health law focussing on consent/capacity issues, mental health and elder law.

Since 2010 I have also worked for the Nova Scotia government, as a member of the Review Panel for the Involuntary Psychiatric Treatment Act.  Between 2012 and 2015, I sat as a panel Chair, only resigning when I became Crown Attorney for the Mental Health Court and Court Monitored Drug Treatment Program in October 2015 (conflict of interest).

In June 2014 I began a new post as a Crown Attorney with the Public Prosecution Service in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Since October 2015 I have been the Crown Attorney for the Mental Health Court and Drug Treatment Court in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
