Nicole encourages her clients to engage in alternative dispute resolution whenever possible and is a certified mediator and collaborative family lawyer.
However, Nicole regularly appears in the Supreme Court Family Division and relies on her experience when litigation is necessary.

Nicole earned her LL.B. from the University of New Brunswick in 2011 and was called to the Nova Scotia Bar in 2012.
