Julia is committed to supporting you through the entire judicial process, so that what is often a challenging journey, becomes as clear and straightforward as possible. She believes in taking a holistic approach to resolving your case while minimizing the impact it has on other areas of your life.

Julia received her law degree from Thompson Rivers University in 2023. She maintained Dean’s Honour List standing throughout law school and was awarded the Gregory S. Pun K.C.

Before law school, Julia gained valuable experience working in the Crown Counsel office as a legal assistant.
