Louise has spent her entire legal career primarily practicing in the area of statutory accident benefits. Originally a history major at Wilfrid Laurier University, as a lawyer, Louise has been a witness and participant in the historical evolution of the SABS. Originally assisting on OMPP and Bill 164 claims, and then working with insurers under Bills 59 and 198, and more recently through the changes implemented in 2010 and 2016, Louise has been there, done that, and (mostly) seen it all.
A skilled negotiator and effective advocate, Louise is well-known for delivering results, having resolved countless claims through negotiation, mediation, or by arbitration before the Licence Appeal Tribunal.
Inside and outside of the office, Louise is known for making lists, both in her daily To Do’s and an ever-evolving Bucket List. That Bucket List has taken her to over 35 countries, seven U2 concerts, four Olympic Games, two Golden Globe Awards red carpets, and one bungy jump off the Auckland Harbour Bridge. A collector of ephemera, she has the ticket stubs to prove it.
