Even before law school, Sandra knew she wanted to be a litigator because she liked to challenge and argue on behalf of others.
Since being called to the bar in 2005, she has accumulated extensive experience in commercial, civil, employment, insurance defence and estate matters. As a result, the costs and personal tolls of litigation on clients are always at the forefront of her mind when advising clients and encouraging non-litigious solutions when possible.
After completing an undergraduate degree in international relations and languages at the University of Toronto, Sandra spent a year in Rome, Italy working at the Canadian Embassy. She returned to Canada to attend law school, graduating from the University of Windsor Law School in 2004, and completed a clerkship at the Superior Court of Justice for her articles.
When not in the office, Sandra spends her time travelling and being physically active. She has competed in triathlons, duathlons, runs, and in 2010, she ran her first half-marathon. She summited Mount Kilimanjaro, scuba-dived in Zanzibar and trekked to the top of Machu Picchu.
Sandra’s language skills include oral and written Italian.
She is a board member of the Canadian Italian Advocates Organization, and a member of the Ontario Bar Association and JTEP (estates practitioners group).
