I joined Szakacs Law in May 2022.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology (with a Co-op and concentration in Criminology) from the University of Calgary in 2005. While working as a Researcher in the field of Indigenous affairs and Treaty research, I completed my Legal Assistant training at Bow Valley College in 2008.
I began my legal career in 2008 as a Legal Assistant at Alberta Justice, Legal Services Division, Civil Litigation – ultimately becoming a valued Paralegal with now 14+ years of experience in the field of Civil Litigation. I gained valuable skills and knowledge in various areas of law within civil litigation and have worked on matters regarding expropriation, civil forfeiture, fatality inquiries, etc.
After having worked on the defence side of legal matters for several years, I joined the team at Szakacs Law to learn the plaintiff’s perspective.
My role at Szakacs Law is to advocate for the best interests of our clients as they move through the personal injury and motor vehicle collision claims process. My responsibilities include researching and gathering information in support of personal injury claims, preparing Statements of Claim and other Court documents, scheduling clients for independent medical examinations, among various other steps to move files forward towards a proper and meaningful resolution for our clients. My goal is to ensure that our clients feel supported and guided throughout the litigation process.
In my spare time, I enjoy yoga, camping, and going on long walking adventures with my husband, our two boys and our Boxer dog.
