Victoria was born and raised in Barrie, Ontario and has a keen interest in Family Law and Estate Litigation.

Victoria decided to study law to give herself a professional platform upon which to exercise her distinct passion for advocating for vulnerable individuals and families. Victoria obtained her undergraduate degree from Laurentian University with a double-major in Political Science and Women Studies. Following the completion of her dual-B.A., she entered into a career at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario where she built upon her passion for advocacy. She was instrumental in the development of Bill 88: Youth Right to Care- a non-partisan advocacy effort for a piece of legislation that bridged the gap for 16 and 17-year-old children in need which resulted in the extension of the Age of Protection in Ontario to 18 years old.

Victoria is active in the local community. She currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Child Welfare Political Action Committee. She is a member of the Simcoe County Young Professionals Association and volunteers with the Government Relations division of MS Society of Canada. Victoria believes HGR Graham Partners is well-matched with her unique personal and professional experiences, and embraces the opportunity to apply her skills in a capacity that serves the community she is so deeply rooted in.
