In the past, she acted as defence counsel for ICBC as well as in-house counsel for a multinational insurance company and resort/construction development company managing a variety of claims from disability and punitive damages claims to catastrophic ski accidents, construction defects and employment and privacy claims.

Born in Ottawa and then raised in Nova Scotia, Kate completed her undergraduate degree at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and received her law degree from the University of Victoria. Kate has put down roots in the Fraser Valley over the past 7 years, where she enjoys walking her three mini dogs (under 5 lbs), reading Nordic Noir mysteries and watching murder mysteries. She tries to stay current with music, movies and pop culture to maintain a perception of being even slightly “cool” according to her 2 young nieces and 1 young nephew.
Kate was called to the BC Bar in 2002 and has represented clients before regulatory boards, tribunals and BC provincial and supreme courts since that time.
